MA - Medieval and Early Modern Studies, PhD - Medieval and Early Modern Studies
The opportunities for research are many and varied: Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library have an international reputation, but are relatively under-exploited as scholarly resources; social and religious aspects of the medieval and the Tudor city of Canterbury provide fascinating topics for investigation; the dramatic and literary associations of the city are exceptionally rich. Current research topics (many of which have a local or regional basis) include literacy and readership, piety, the Reformation, visual and manuscript culture, community, and drama.
The University of Kent was founded in 1965 and since then has achieved prominence as one of Britain's most innovative and enterprising universities. Our students come from many different backgrounds (there are over 110 nationalities represented at Kent) giving a rich cultural variety on campus. Students come from Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, the United States, Nigeria and Europe as well as from the UK.
