Dissertation / Major Project,
EITHER Conflicts in Context
OR Independent Project: Humanities.
Teaching and Assessment:
You will experience a blend of seminar-based teaching and tutorial project support, based on meeting a tutor individually or in groups of two or three. Seminars will take place one evening a week, generally in two, two-hour sessions. Tutorials are arranged by mutual convenience and support can also be given by email. You will be given comprehensive materials for the seminars, including prepared readings necessary for participation in discussions.
As with any course of study, the MA History of War, Culture and Society will require a significant commitment of time outside formal teaching hours, for reading, preparation and assessment.
Like all Master's degrees, especially if taken full time, the MA is a demanding course, but you will have plenty of support and guidance, given by telephone and email, to help you meet your goals.
How are you assessed?
You will also be expected to produce two or three significant pieces of work for each of the three taught seminar units, along with two project reports and your final dissertation, which itself will be in the region of 15,000 words.
