BA dissertations

The research programme offers rich opportunities to BA students. Eight BA dissertations have been undertaken on the project as part of the History Tripos and one as part of the Economics Tripos. A high percentage of these have been awarded first class marks. A list of dissertations can be found below. Thus far seven of these dissertations have focussed on occupational structure and all eight have been on England and Wales. Some are local, regional or county studies, others take a thematic approach. Most of these have made use of pre-existing data created by the Occupational Structure of Britain as well as creating new data to put alongside the pre-existing data. Prospective BA students are advised to contact Amy Erickson on Leigh Shaw-Taylor.
