Explorations modules (30 credits) concentrate on a particular topic or theme over a relatively short period of time, and are designed to be a bridge between the autumn term Histories and Contexts and the Special Subject in your third year. The courses are designed to develop your critical skills in reading primary sources and secondary works as well as expanding your understanding of key issues in history.
You attend a weekly two-hour seminar in the spring term; and during the summer will focus on individual or group projects. The seminar element of these modules will be assessed by an exam taken in the assessment period of the summer term (weeks five to seven), and the project element will be assessed by written work handed in at the start of that assessment period (week five).
