Final year Comparative Option examples


These modules allow you to engage with the study of change over time and to consider the comparative dimensions of a topic, whether by studying themes across an extended period in the history of a single society or culture or by studying a number of contrasting geographical experiences over time.

Please note that the following list includes the full range of comparative options that we offer. A selection of these will be available each session and the exact programme varies from year to year. *
