Module overview

The culmination of your Masters’ degree, this module will provide you with the opportunity to convert your learning into a 12000 word dissertation on a historical research topic of your choice, subject to available supervisory expertise. Your final dissertation will present a coherent, detailed, and sustained argument on a subject which may follow on from work completed in other elements of the programme. It will involve conducting independent research using a variety of primary sources, and the analysis and interrogation of existing historiography. While you will work independently to produce the final submission, you will be allocated a suitable supervisor, and the project will develop under their supervision.
