Economic and Social History Pathway Information

History and Welsh history

In addition to the taught elements of the MSc and the +3 Training Programme in SOCSCI, students are also required to attend and participate in compulsory and optional advanced history modules, historiographical modules and tailored training modules in the History and Welsh History Section of the School of History and Archaeology. A wide range of options is available to suit students interested in different historical periods, regions and topics. In addition, students follow the compulsory Historical Theory and Historical Methods course alongside students of MA History. There is a programme of seminars and master classes for History Masters students that MSc. students are encouraged to attend and an array of social activities for postgraduates in the School of History and Archaeology is open to MSc students.

+3 Training Programme

The +3 Training Programme is built upon the foundations laid in the MSc. programme. It is designed to provide a standard of training in social science and education research methods that gives students the opportunity to acquire familiarity with, and understanding of, a broad range of methodological approaches as well as the ability to apply advanced methodological techniques to empirical data.

For those proceeding to PhD, the skills developed in the MSc are supplemented and extended over the subsequent three years within a structured programme organised around the following four elements: advanced research skills; research governance; personal and employment-related skills; and teaching skills.
