Students choose from excellent history modules, all carefully constructed and taught by experts with relevant research interests and reputations. Coursework includes short presentations on the student’s dissertation subject, which are considered more of an informal symposium that greatly aids discussion and reflection. Students taking this Diploma as a stepping stone to the MA should include a Dissertation Module.
