Program Description

MA Medieval & Early Modern Studies

University of Kent, School of History

This unique interdisciplinary programme provides the opportunity for intensive historical, literary or art-historical study. It challenges students to engage with the evidence and methods of different disciplines in order to equip them with the wide range of research techniques crucial for studying the period.

The MA provides a thorough grounding in the skills required for advanced study in the medieval and early modern periods, as well as a core course in interdisciplinary study and an exciting and varied range of optional modules. In addition, students produce a final dissertation of 12-15,000 words, for which they receive one-to-one supervision.


The School of History is based at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus.

Called Durovernum by the Romans, Canterbury is a city steeped in history and as such makes a stimulating environment for anyone wishing to study the past. The green and leafy campus is situated on a hill overlooking the city, and is conveniently located for travel to both London and the continent.
