About the course

The MRes provides excellent preparation for study at MPhil/PhD level for students with a defined research topic, but is also a degree in its own right.

The programme is primarily assessed by a 30,000-word dissertation on your chosen topic, but also incorporates two taught courses:

  • Explorations and Debates in History investigates the ways historians have conceptualised and contested historical practice in the modern and early modern periods.
  • Research Skills develops expertise in a variety of methodologies including the use of oral, visual and material, as well as textual, sources.

You'll be assessed by two 2,000- and one 4,000-word essays, and a 30,000-word dissertation. The dissertation may be followed by a viva voce.

Initial enquiries should be directed to the department
