Course content

This modular degree scheme is designed to allow students to further their undergraduate interest in history, and to develop the skills and knowledge needed to undertake further research into the past. It combines training in research techniques and theoretical and historiographic analysis, with taught courses and a substantial dissertation. There is a choice of specialist modules covering a range of periods from medieval to contemporary history, matching the research interests of the teaching staff including: Normandy under the Normans, 9111144; Women and Power in the High Middle Ages; National Identities in Britain and Ireland 1660, 1800; Identities and the Victorian City; An Open Elite Nineteenth-Century England and Wales; Sport and Politics 1918,1991; Consumerism and Anti-Consumerism in the Cold War. The dissertation (taken by those who proceed beyond the diploma) allows students to research a substantial topic of their own choosing, under supportive individual supervision.
