Course content

The MLitt in Reformation Studies provides intensive training in the historiography, debates and sources of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations.

Course highlights

  • Students have the opportunity to explore the literature in a field of particular individual interest with an expert member of staff.
  • The programme offers students the flexibility to pursue their own avenues of interest, specialising in a particular theological, geographical or methodological area, while also instilling a wide contextual awareness of all of the European Reformations.

Teaching format

The MLitt in Reformation Studies is a taught postgraduate programme run by the Reformation Studies Institute in the School of History. Over two semesters, students complete two compulsory modules and two optional modules.

Teaching methods include seminars and fortnightly tutorials. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed by coursework only; there is no final exam.

Students will spend the final three months of the course focusing on researching and writing the final assessment piece for the MLitt, a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.
