Individual Humanities Module

Course Description

These modules enable you to develop specialist expertise in a topic new to you or perhaps refresh your knowledge in a topic that is familiar but which you studied long ago. Perhaps you already work in the area but need to understand its foundations.

The stand-alone modules are taken from our wide range of Masters degrees, you will study alongside our Masters students, and belong to our postgraduate community.

Why Dundee?

Our academic staff offer postgraduate modules in their specialist areas, so you are taught by experts in the field.
For example, our Comics Studies modules are taught by Dr Chris Murray, who researches comics, organises major comics conferences, and co-edits one of the few peer-reviewed journals in this expanding field. Our Global Historians provide modules covering the history of many Global Empires, and as well as the history of Scotland. The European Institute for Security & Justice run our International Security modules.

Modules available

For full details of the modules currently available, please visit the Humanities website.

How you will be taught

Most modules are taught via one face to face class each week, some have fortnightly classes. The format of the classes varies depending on the subject and class size.

How you will be assessed

We use a range of coursework assignments, including presentations, essays and course journals to assess our postgraduate modules. There are no exams.


These modules form part of our postgraduate portfolio. You can continue from a single module to a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Masters (MLitt), by combining relevant modules.
