The course gives students a solid experience in postgraduate study and research. It prepares those who wish to go on to a PhD with the necessary insights and skills to allow them to pursue their interest in history yet further. The focus on the twentieth century makes this the ideal choice for those seeking a challenging course for the purpose of continuous personal development. The taught elements (6 of 7 modules) are based around maximum choice and permit students to choose from the Master’s-level modules available within the department. The very scheduling of the taught modules adds another layer of flexibility, in that some modules are taught on weekday evenings, others on select Saturdays in the year. Through its flexibility and choice, as well as the robust student support that lecturers and the library offer, this course will continue the long tradition of inclusivity prevalent at the University, which benefits those electing to study with us. We trust that upon completion of the course, students themselves become ambassadors for inclusiveness wherever they choose to go thereafter.
