The PGDip and MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies are interdisciplinary programmes run jointly by the Schools of History and International Relations.

Highlights

  • Students have the opportunity to work on an individual and small-group basis with internationally leading scholars in the fields of legal, constitutional and historical research.
  • The flexible nature of the programme makes it suitable both for those wishing to go on to doctoral research and for those wishing only to take a year’s specialist study.
  • The compulsory modules equip students with knowledge of different theoretical approaches to law, legal history and constitutionalism, using the past to interrogate and investigate current issues and controversies.

Teaching format

Over two semesters, students take six modules taught through a range of group seminars, workshops, one-to-one discussions and supervised independent research projects.

The specialist modules are designed to be flexible enough to enable students to choose their own areas of in-depth study and include individually tailored research training and guidance.

Module assessment comprises coursework; there are no final exams for this programme. 

MLitt students will research and write a 15,000-word dissertation as their final assessment piece.

Conferences and events

The Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research at St Andrews hosts a number of reading groups, seminars and lectures, including visiting speakers and cross-discipline presentations, on legal and constitutional research and ideas. 

Careers

Legal and Constitutional Studies is designed to prepare students for work beyond the MLitt, such as:

  • doctoral research within the field
  • study for a law degree
  • employment in areas more broadly related to law, legal history, global constitutionalism and international relations.

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
