The programme can be followed along one of three strands (Intelligence history, British history or American history): The British history pathway focuses on British historical experience in the 19th and 20th centuries, with special reference to the relationship between Britain and its empire and to social class in modern Britain. Intelligence history explores the history of intelligence in the 20th century through the medium of the British intelligence community, particularly, though not exclusively, the Secret Intelligence Service (popularly known as MI6). Professor Keith Jeffery, the pathway convenor, is currently completing the official history of SIS. The American history pathway focuses on the history of the United States, and especially the American South, in the last two centuries.
