Advanced Historical Research Skills (HISM016)

30 credits

This module is designed to develop the advanced skills you will need to undertake a MA History degree, especially to research and write as a historian, and it will involve you in the active research culture of Exeter’s History Department. You will engage with some of the major concepts and theories employed by historians over the past century and a half, with the aim of providing you with the methodological insights to develop your own programme of research. In addition, you will learn to plan a major research project and to communicate that research – its aims, objects, methods and discoveries – which is an essential part of your development as a postgraduate researcher.
