Course summary

The MLitt in Modern History offers students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of key issues in the discipline by pursuing their studies at a conceptually advanced level. Postgraduate historians work intensively in a variety of subject areas while achieving a steady progression in core fields such as historiography and methodology.

Course information

The MLitt in Modern History is a taught postgraduate programme run by the School of History.

Highlights

  • The course provides an introduction to history and historiography for students interested in all branches of historical study.
  • The programme is designed to maximise student choice. Students can either specialise in a particular area (e.g. French history, German history, transnational history, American history) or gain a broader introduction to the study of history at postgraduate level.
  • Students will explore the literature on a topic of individual interest under the guidance of an expert.

Teaching format

Teaching methods include seminars and fortnightly tutorials. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed by coursework only; there is no final exam.

Students will spend the final three months of the course focusing on researching and writing the final assessment piece for the MLitt, a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.

Careers

History postgraduates go on to pursue careers in a range of sectors including:

  • journalism
  • publishing
  • think tanks
  • government
  • law
  • teaching.

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
