Teaching and assessment
for Scottish History MLitt
We offer a wide range of core and optional modules, meaning that you can tailor your qualification to your own interests.
Content is available online and you will work through it carrying out a series of assessed, self-study, and group tasks. You will be given the opportunity to communicate with your fellow students via the discussion board and to work on embedded source material.
You will always have a subject expert as your tutor and many tutors will also offer voluntary webinar sessions.
Assessment is carried out via coursework and discussion board participation. There are variations across modules however weighting is usually as follows:
- 1 x final assignment = 50%
- 2 x assessed tasks = 20% each
- Discussion board participation = 10%
