The programme combines an advanced level introduction to the methodologies and techniques of modern history together with a choice of thematic taught modules which lead to a research dissertation.
Students are introduced to a wide range of sources and approaches drawn from the entire span of the early modern period, and thereby gain an unusual breadth of vision which transcends more conventional boundaries.
Students are encouraged to participate in the lively scholarly community of the department's active graduate school through attendance at relevant MA seminars, research training sessions and the weekly departmental research seminar.
