Course content

The MLitt in Early Modern and Reformation History provides advanced study of the history of the early modern European and Atlantic worlds, including the Ottoman Empire. It introduces students to a range of approaches to early modern history (1450 to 1750) and provides training in skills requisite for study of the period. Students may choose to specialise in early modern religious history during the second semester of their MLitt programme.

This is a one-year taught postgraduate programme run by the School of History.

Highlights

  • Work with a significant number of scholars of early modern history who can provide a high level of specialised supervision and advanced training in the history of the politics, society and culture of the early modern European and Atlantic worlds.
  • For those choosing to specialise in Reformation history, the course instils a wide contextual awareness of all of the European Reformations, while also offering the chance to pursue detailed study of a particular theological, geographical or methodological area.
  • Benefit from broad and deep preparation, offering you the chance to explore and critically evaluate both historiography and primary sources.
  • Pursue high-level skills training to build up to your MLitt dissertation.
  • Preparation for students who are interested in subsequent doctoral research.
