Course content

We can offer PhD supervision across a full chronological, geographical and thematic range due to the expertise of our forty historians. Many of our students make use of the archival material in the Hartley Library’s Special Collections, including prestigious collections of primary documents relating to the history of Britain and its Empire and the history of the modern Jewish experience. We have a very active and creative postgraduate community. Our students are encouraged to participate in the culture of the department including part-time tutoring and research seminars, and to present and publish their research findings. Training in research and presentation skills is provided, and intensive supervision will help you develop your own research project.
