Course summary

The Early Modern Studies MA offers an innovative blend of essential skills training for research (paleography and historical bibliography), object-based learning and museum visits. The core modules cover a wide range of disciplines, giving you a broad understanding of the early modern period. You can then tailor your programme to suit your interests, with over thirty optional modules, covering early modern culture, history and society. This online Masters degree offers students the opportunity to enhance their professional development and understanding of national and global issues in early learning, early years policy and curricula; to critically evaluate a range of literature about young children’s learning and best practice in early education; and to develop their understanding of research methodology with and about young children. Students conduct their own small-scale research project in a setting of their own choice, written as the Dissertation. Part-time students do this during their second year of study.


Graduates of the MA Early Years Education (Online) are currently working as advisers to local and national governments; as nursery, children’s centre and senior leaders; and as further and higher education tutors. Some have become early years doctoral and funded researchers.


This programme will enable students to understand and reflect on current knowledge of international early years policy and practice; to raise awareness of research into early childhood practice and of research methods and approaches relevant to the field of study; and to enable critical understanding of policy development in early childhood services, at a local, national and international level.
