The MLitt in Central and Eastern European Studies offers an interdisciplinary study of the eastern half of the European Union, combining the fields of history, politics, international relations, languages and literature, film studies and art to study this culturally rich and diverse region.
- Modules are wide-ranging and cover areas of international relations, history, art history and film studies, as well as Russian language and literature.
- The School of History has a competitive Language Bursary Scheme in which students may apply to spend the summer preceding the taught element acquiring an appropriate Eastern European language.
- Students have the option of taking a Directed Reading module (tailored individual course of study) in order to engage with a research field of specific individual interest with the support of a specialist member of staff.
The MLitt in Central and Eastern European Studies is an interdisciplinary programme run by the School of History in collaboration with the Schools of International Relations, Modern Languages, Art History, and the Department of Film Studies.
Over the course of two semesters, students will take four modules. Teaching methods include seminars, lectures and fortnightly tutorials. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed by coursework only; there is no final exam.
Students will spend the final three months of the course focusing on researching and writing the final assessment piece for the MLitt, a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.
