This interdisciplinary course integrates European urban history and urban studies. It entails a comparative study of the city and its impact on European development from the earliest times to the present day and gives you the opportunity to study in two European universities during the one-year programme.
Teaching and Assessment
The modules at the Centre for Urban History are taught on the basis of small group seminars. The teaching is innovative and high quality and conducted by enthusiastic and experienced staff. Modules are assessed by written work and oral presentations.
In the first semester you will take the two core modules Historical Research Methods and The City in History. You spend the second semester in one of our four partner institutions across Europe.
You will also write a 20,000 word dissertation which provides an important opportunity for you to develop their own research expertise while working on an approved topic under the direction of a supervisor.
