The MLitt in Early Modern History is a one-year taught postgraduate programme run by the School of History.

Highlights

  • Work with a significant number of scholars of early modern history who can provide a high level of specialised supervision and advanced training in the history of the early modern European and Atlantic worlds.
  • Benefit from broad and deep preparation, offering you the chance to explore and critically evaluate both historiography and primary sources.
  • Pursue high-level skills training to build up to your MLitt dissertation.
  • Preparation for students who are interested in subsequent doctoral research.

Teaching format

The MLitt course lasts for one calendar year; taught modules run from September to April, followed by dissertation research and writing over the late spring and summer.

Teaching methods typically include fortnightly seminars, practical classes and tutorials. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed by coursework only; there is no final exam.

The early modern cohort is typically close-knit and friendly, but comprises a diverse, international group with a range of intellectual interests. Students work closely with each other, with early modern research staff, and also with students in parallel MLitt degrees such as Reformation Studies, Intellectual History, and Book History.

Conferences and events

The School of History hosts the Early Modern and Modern History Postgraduate Forum, which provides a space for postgraduates at all stages to present ideas, discuss research issues and find out about what their fellow historians are up to. 

The Reformation Studies Institute at St Andrews hosts a seminar programme, holding numerous talks and lectures each semester.

Careers

History postgraduates go on to pursue careers in a range of sectors including:

  • journalism
  • publishing
  • think tanks
  • government
  • law
  • teaching. 

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
