Course Summary

The MRes degree is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It is aimed at those who wish to move beyond taught work and are prepared to engage in research in depth for a substantial postgraduate thesis, but who also wish to take modules that help develop research and related skills, and to study broader historical subjects with other postgraduates. After consultation with your academic supervisor, you can pursue a research project in any aspect of British and European history and focus on political, military or diplomatic history, or the history of early modern religion, culture, society or ideas. Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.

Modules

These sessions will familiarise you with important practical and methodological issues, as well as giving a sense of how these kinds of material have been used by historians to enhance our understanding of the past.
