Modules and Learning

The History MRes course allows you to embark on a closely supervised research project, whilst participating in taught modules that will further your knowledge and understanding of this subject.

With a key focus on research, you will acquire generic research skills that are applicable not just to history, but a broad range of other subjects. The taught aspect of this course will be primarily delivered by group seminars, which will be assessed via a mix of oral and written presentations, critical reviews and portfolios of work.

Your dissertation will form a large part of the assessment process and learning will be delivered by one-to-one tutorials with an expert supervisor.

In addition to the mandatory modules of this course, you will have the option to choose a pathway subject and two discipline-specific modules to allow your learning to be focused around your own areas of interest.
