Course content

The Master of Research in Historical Research is a one-year course that is research-oriented and allows you to specialise in particular research areas.

The MRes is designed to:

  • enable you to become a well-trained historian
  • demonstrate your ability to undertake research to doctoral level at Stirling or other universities in Britain and overseas

Both of these aims are achieved through the completion of independent study modules, field seminars and skills training conducted under supervision. You’ll also be allocated an individual supervisor to direct your independent study and plan the curriculum to reflect your interests and needs.

Our course prepares you for further research by covering many different topics including:

  • coordination of the provision of additional or external skills training to develop the application of research skills
  • practical experience of devising and applying a research method to interrogate primary sources
  • qualitative and quantitative analysis
  • the application of IT in information retrieval, especially bibliographical database software
  • written and oral communication skills
  • project design involving the conceptualisation of research questions and the presentation of data and data analysis

Professional accreditations

The course is recognised by both the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council. Both have given PhD awards to outstanding Stirling graduates of the MRes.
