Research degrees

M.Phil. and Ph.D. in History

Almost all the institutions participating in the School of History offer research training in the areas of their specialisation. More information on these specialisms is available from the relevant departments and all enquiries about pursuing a course of study for the M.Phil. or Ph.D. degree should be addressed to the College at which the enquirer wishes to register (see contact addresses).

A wide range of courses and seminars for students working for higher degrees by thesis are given in the Institute of Historical Research and elsewhere (see Research Seminars). Admission is not restricted to graduates seeking higher degrees in the University, but it is open to others, duly qualified, paying the fees and engaged upon specific lines of research.

M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Combined Historical Studies

Available at the Warburg Institute.

The Institute accepts students to pursue independent research by thesis only for the M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees. The normal entrance requirement is a first or good second class honours degree from a U.K. university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Students’ interests may lie in any aspect of the history of the classical tradition provided that their topic can be supervised by a member of the academic staff.

Application for admission should be made to the Secretary and Registrar, The Warburg Institute.

M.Phil. and Ph.D. in the History of Christianity

Available at King’s College London.

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies offers research supervision leading to the degrees of M.Phil. and Ph.D.
