Students are reassessed in the failed elements of assessment and by the same methods as the first attempt.
The modules offered in each academic year are subject to change in line with staff availability and student demand: there is no guarantee every module will run. Module descriptions and information may vary between years.
The 15,000 word dissertation lies at the heart of the MA and is based on primary sources: it is designed as a substantial research project, the equivalent of a major article for a historical journal or a chapter in a PhD thesis. It offers students the chance to research a topic of their choice, working with a supervisor from the department.
