Subject Overview:

Students will undertake in-depth study in the methodology of a nominated single discipline within the humanities (eg. history, geography, politics). A study of the major theories and approaches to the humanities will form a key aspect of this course along with current research and debate on the nature, content and purpose of this area. Models of curriculum design, policy making and approaches to evaluation in the humanities will be used for analysis and comparison.
