Course summary

About the course

This one year part-time course consists of three taught units and a dissertation. It covers English architectural history from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day. The course is designed to offer a progression from supported learning, with regular essays and feedback in the Historical Studies units, to more independent work in the Site Evaluation Survey Unit and, particularly, the dissertation, and can therefore act as a preparation for progression to a higher academic level, including doctoral work.

Assessment

In addition to the dissertation which is written during unit four, assessment takes place throughout the course. Unit one is assessed by three essays, each of 1,500 words. Assessment of unit two consists of two essays, each of 2,000 words and unit three is assessed via a workbook record of a selected building, to be submitted by mid-May.

Graduate destinations

Upon successful completion of this course, some students have gone on to further graduate study at a master's or doctoral level at Oxford and elsewhere; others find employment with conservation and heritage organisations.
