7AAH1201 Dissertation (Contemporary History)
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.
