Thematic modules

These modules, aimed at second-year students and normally taught by weekly 2-hour seminars (of c. 15 students), typically examine a particular historical theme in detail.

Assessment is now two coursework essays of 2,500 words each (50%) and one 3-hour examination (50%). As with History Survey modules, teachers may require students to make other unassessed contributions. Second-year students may take a module of this type from the menu of ‘Group 2’ modules available from other colleges.

Please note that one-term only affiliate students take the 15-credit versions of Thematic modules. The assessment pattern for these half-year versions are listed on the UCL Module Catalogue pages, the main 30cr versions are hyperlinked below.
