Entry Requirements

You must hold an honours degree. Although your degree need not be in humanities, you must have the skills expected of a graduate in that area. Both modules will bring you up to date with the latest ideas and approaches in humanities but do not offer remedial undergraduate training if your qualifications and/or experience are inadequate.

You must be able to:

write clear, concise, accurate prose
read large quantities of text quickly, accurately and critically
classify evidence precisely and assess its value and reliability
argue logically, consistently and sceptically
marshal evidence to support a logical argument.
