MA in Early Modern Studies
The MA in Early Modern Studies brings together a group of internationally renowned scholars from numerous disciplines and fields working in the period 1400 - 1800. Its focus is on providing world-leading training for research, enabling the next generation of specialists in the period to study and read documents, state papers, letters, and treatises, work on printed books, material culture, art and other objects, understand crucial theoretical and methodological issues and produce fresh insights and new knowledge whether as university researchers or in the heritage and cultural industries. The defining features of this MA are its interdisciplinarity and the geographical, linguistic and global reach of the expertise and specialisms of teaching staff.
Students accepted onto the course take a Core Course (30 credits), two options drawn from a long list in each term or over two terms (15/30 credits each to a total of 60 credits) and do a 15,000 – 20,000 word dissertation (90 credits).
