Course Summary

Don’t just study history: write it. Our Early Modern History Master’s degree will equip you with the tools you need to examine and interrogate primary and secondary sources, so that you graduate with the skill to develop refined and informed, original historic research.

Our Master’s programme focuses on early modern culture, politics, religion, and society between 1500 and 1750. Taught by our eminent historians, whose seminars will relate directly to their research, you’ll be learning at the very forefront of historical debate.

Our School has a vibrant postgraduate community, attracted here by our specialist academics and the output of our research. In fact, we have one of the UK’s highest concentrations of historic expertise, and in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) 99% of UEA’s research in History was rated as internationally recognised.

OVERVIEW

Focusing on Britain, continental Europe and the Atlantic world between 1500 and 1750, our Early Modern History MA covers a wide variety of topics including religion and politics, gender history, power and social relations, mentalities, orality and print culture, questions of authenticity and forgery, and material culture.

Our programme is characterised by its intensity, rigour, and creativity of study. Through it you’ll not only acquire a deeper and more advanced knowledge and understanding of early modern history, but you’ll also develop and improve your understanding of the problems and opportunities posed by primary sources and documents.
