This new interdisciplinary programme draws on expertise in the Humanities from across the College of Arts and Law, allowing you to select modules from a range of disciplines in order to complete a Certificate, Diploma or Masters level qualification. The programme’s core modules will enable you to develop challenging and original approaches to significant topics in which no one discipline has all the answers, which you can go on to apply to your choice of optional modules.
The flexibility of this programme, and Birmingham’s unparalleled menu of optional modules, will enable you to develop high level skills within selected areas of expertise.
All students must take one core module: Graduate Research Skills: College of Arts and Law
MA and Diploma students take an additional core module: Questioning the Humanities
The remainder of the programme is made up of your choice of optional modules – two modules to complete the Certificate, or four modules to complete the MA or Diploma. These can be chosen from a wide range across the
College in the following subject areas:
Classics and Ancient History
English Language and Linguistics
Sexuality and Gender Studies
Theology and Religion
We also offer a range of theory and skills modules across a variety of disciplines. Some modules will be available to study by distance learning as well as on campus. Additional module information is available below (see ‘modules’).
MA students must also complete a 15,000-word dissertation. This provides an ideal opportunity to complete an in-depth research project that reflects your personal interests; this could be interdisciplinary – based on a topic or theme that runs across your modules and/or is relevant to your prior experience – or focused on a particular disciplinary area.
On completing this programme, you will be equipped to enter a wide range of sectors, such as heritage, cultural, public, education or voluntary. This programme can also provide a foundation for those who wish to proceed to doctoral study.
