The MLitt in Early Modern and Reformation History provides advanced study of the history of the early modern European and Atlantic worlds, including the Ottoman Empire. It introduces students to a range of approaches to early modern history (1450 to 1750) and provides training in skills requisite for study of the period. Students may choose to specialise in early modern religious history during the second semester of their MLitt programme.
