HIST400: Dissertation

This 25,000-30,000 word dissertation provides the opportunity for a student to demonstrate the knowledge, understanding, research skills and techniques of presentation developed in the taught modules of the MA degree scheme. The specialist field of enquiry is chosen by the student in consultation with a supervisor and other members of the department during Michaelmas Term. Individual one-to-one supervisions will be provided throughout the year to support taught modules, define and formulate a research hypothesis, identify relevant qualitative and quantitative sources, provide guidance on presentation and comment on the structure of the dissertation and sample chapters.
