Course content

The MSc provides an introduction to advanced study in American History both to students who plan to embark on doctoral work and to students who simply want to spend a year pursuing in more depth intellectual interests developed as undergraduates. This programme is distinctive in its breadth and diversity, both chronological and thematic. It draws on the wide range of American historical expertise available in the School.
