The biography and life writing program offers students an opportunity to explore a range of different approaches to the researching and writing of biographies. Although offered within the School of Historical Studies, it draws on the ideas and approaches of a number of disciplines and makes use of the great strength in this field across the faculty.

Students may take units that explore the history of biography, that deal with oral history and memory, or that look at some of the ways in which contemporary biographical work is being done.
