Course content

This programme allows you to specialise in particular themes, but also lets you bring together modules that aren’t commonly studied together.

You will be taught by leading experts in their fields and will be exposed to innovative approaches and cutting-edge research.
The programme centres on skills of independent learning. For each module, you will, with the guidance of your tutors, establish your own research agenda and find ways to address the questions you wish to answer. You'll have access to abundant materials available to historians at York (including the rich holdings of the Borthwick Institute for Archives) to contextualise your findings and develop arguments.
