Course content

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 or European history, including European discovery of the wider world and focus on political, military or diplomatic history, or the history of early modern religion, culture, society or ideas.

The degree consists of four elements which make a total of 180 credits:

20,000 word thesis (120 credits)
Historical Methods module (20 credits, autumn)
Writing Early Modern History: Sources and Approaches (20 credits, spring)
Research Preparation (20 credits, autumn & spring)

Modules are assessed in various ways – by examination, coursework, presentation, transcription and attendance.

About the School of History and Culture

The programmes in the School of History and Cultures offer students enquiry based learning within a rich and diverse environment to stimulate debate and challenge conventional thinking.
The programmes derive from departments which are all excellently rated by the QAA both in teaching and research terms (Medieval History 5, Modern History 5 and African Studies 5*). Our staff publish widely, and we are developing and consolidating a strong, supportive research culture in the School.
We are extremely proud to announce in June 2016, that History at Birmingham was ranked the top research department in the country by the Research Excellence Framework (REF). The national REF exercise assessed research publications and the public impact of research carried out in all universities in the UK between 2008-2014. Our department had an impressive 45% of its research judged to be ‘world-leading’.
