- This programme will develop essential knowledge and skills in your field and offer a clear route into a chosen destination: whether PhD study, professional practice, or an alternative research-related career.
- Our experts specialisms include Shakespeare, Defoe, and the writer and Bishop of Worcester Richard Hurd - as well as the topics of evil, the Devil, and the supernatural within early modern history.

How will you be taught?
This MRes includes taught modules, a personal development plan and research project. You will be expected to take and pass two 15- and one 30-credit module before culminating the course with the production of a substantial project of your own.
For the duration of the MRes you will be allocated one or possibly two supervisors who will support you through the personal development plan and research project phases of the programme.
Where there is more than one supervisor, one person will be identified as your lead supervisor or ‘Director of Studies’. They will have responsibility for supervising you regularly and for ensuring that you receive proper guidance and support, while also acting as your personal tutor. The supervisor(s) will have research experience in the area covered by your research project.
