Early Modern History

This is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It is aimed at those who wish to move beyond taught work and are prepared to engage in research in depth for a substantial postgraduate thesis, but who also wish to take modules that help develop research and related skills, and to study broader historical subjects with other postgraduates. After consultation with their academic supervisor, students can pursue a research project in any aspect of British and European history and focus on political, military or diplomatic history, or the history of early modern religion, culture, society or ideas.

Entry requirements

Entry usually requires a good (normally a 2.1 or above) Honours degree, or an equivalent qualification if you were educated outside the UK.
