The MA in Early Modern Studies

This taster session will give you an insight into what it is like to study on UCL’s MA in Early Modern Studies

With the MA in Early Modern Studies you can tailor a programme to suit your interests.

  • You will take two core modules: Reframing the Renaissance and Forging the Early Modern (a total of 30 credits). These modules cover a wide range of disciplines, giving you a broad understanding of the Early Modern period, and helping you identify areas of interest for further study.
  • You then select 2-4 optional modules (15 or 30 credits each, up to a total of 60 credits)
  • All students will also complete an 18,000 word dissertation (90 credits)

The programme is very hands-on, with a combination of lively tutorials, workshops, discussions and library, archive, museum and gallery visits. For more information on the degree, including entry requirements and how to apply, see the online prospectus.
