History (Local History) MA
1-2 years, full- or part-time
This is for you if... you are fascinated by regional identities, society and landscape, and historical ecology and you wish to learn historical research techniques.
Teaching and learning
You will be taught through a wide range of lecture classes, seminars, practical classes, tutorials, day-trips in the field, a one-week residential field course, and a 15,000 word dissertation of your own choosing which will be supervised by a member of staff.
Assessment is by essays, assignments and projects, and your dissertation.
My course has enabled me to study a wide range of core topics whilst also specialising in my favoured area. I feel that I have a more in-depth and rounded knowledge – the skills that I have gained have put me in a good position for a diverse range of careers.
