Teaching

You will be assigned an adviser of studies who will help you choose the combination of modules that best reflects your interests and ambitions.

We teach in a way that encourages innovation and creativity, as well as enabling you to draw links between subjects.

Due to the choice of subjects, the teaching methods vary from module to module. However, most will use a selection of the following:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • seminars or workshops
  • film screenings
  • independent research
  • practical classes

You can choose from the full range of MA modules available, for details visit our modules page.

Assessment

Assessments are carried out by coursework and exams and vary in type and weighting from module to module.

Methods of assessment include:

  • essays
  • presentations
  • journals/blogs
  • group projects
  • report writing
  • class tests
  • case studies
  • dissertation
  • examinations

Exams range from 2-3 hours. Many modules do not have any exams and focus entirely on coursework.

Modules

At Levels 1 and 2 you will normally choose six modules in each year from across the range of subjects available. At Levels 3 and 4 you will normally choose four modules in each year.

For some social science subjects you may need to have previously passed a module in that area before progressing to the next level. You can discuss this with your adviser of studies.
