MLitt in Reformation Studies
This one year degree in Reformation Studies offers students the opportunity to study in St Andrews, the historic heart of the Scottish Reformation and Renaissance, at Scotland's oldest university.

Course Structure

The MLitt. in Reformation Studies is a twelve-month programme, which functions either as an independent course of study or as a training degree for doctoral work. The taught part of the programme lasts from September to May. Each student takes the core course, 'Aspects of Reformation', plus two other optional courses. Between May and August each student then completes a 15,000 word dissertation.

Core course: Aspects of Reformation
This course is taken by all students and is team taught by all members of the staff at the Institute. It explores the approaches and methods employed in the study of early modern religious history. Students are introduced to a wide variety of recent literature on the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, covering topics ranging from theology and church history to politics, social history, and visual culture.

Contents

Taught courses: These provide a structured approach to various themes within early modern history. The courses are taught through a combination of seminar classes and individual meetings with supervisors. The option available from year to year vary, but might include:Religion and Identity in Early Modern Britain, Society and Religious Change in Sixteenth-Century France; Art and Piety in Western Europe, 1450-1750; Women and Gender, 1500-1800.

Directed reading: A programme of individual study, intended for those who have already developed an interest in a particular area of Reformation history, and who wish to work on an individual basis with a particular member of staff at the Institute. Availability varies, but areas covered might include: Catholic Reform, Renaissance Humanism, Confessionalization, Northern Renaissance, Continental Political Thought, The Church of England from the Reformation to c.1700, Restoration England, Early modern British political thought, Religion in Early Modern Italy, Art and Piety.

Training course: This course is recommended for those wishing to go on to Ph.D. work. It provides training in the research skills necessary for studying early modern history: palaeography, Latin, and modern languages.

Dissertation
The 15,000 word dissertation is written between April and August, and provides students with an opportunity to pursue independent research. Each student will be assigned an appropriate supervisor, who will guide their research and writing via regular meetings.
