The centenary of the outbreak of the First World War has seen interest in the Great War reach unprecedented heights, and the University of Wolverhampton is very pleased to announce a new Part Time Masters programme exploring the History of Britain and the First World War.

This is an exciting new programme delivered by a truly world-class team of scholars. Led by Professor Gary Sheffield, it includes Professor Stephen Badsey and Dr Spencer Jones, Professor Peter Simkins, Dr John Bourne, Professor John Buckley and Dr Laura Ugolini. This is the strongest cluster of scholars specialising in the military history of the First World War to be found in any conventional UK university, and the team will be supported by a number of prestigious guest speakers.

Learning and teaching takes place through a mixture of lectures, seminars, and student presentations. You are only required to be physically present in Wolverhampton for Saturday Schools. These are held once a month during per term-time; there are a total of nine Saturday Schools in Year 1, and seven in Year 2. You will also complete a dissertation, a piece of original research chosen in consultation with the programme leader, which will individually supervised by a specialist tutor in your subject area. Assessment is carried out though a series of essays: there are no examinations.
