Are you a talented student and interested in modern history and international relations? Is a career in research something you aspire to? Then this track is exactly what you are looking for.

You can take the Master's track in Modern History and International Relations as a track within the Research Master's degree programme in History or the Research Master's degree programme in International Relations.

The two-year Master's track in Modern History and International Relations teaches you to carry out independent academic research in the fields of modern and contemporary history and international relations. You will explore recent developments in these fields and study relevant theoretical and methodological backgrounds. You will learn about subjects such as international political economy, the history of cultural identity and European cooperation and integration.

As a student of this programme you work in small groups and are supervised by highly qualified researchers. The programme is closely related to the research carried out at the Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG) and the N.W. Posthumus Institute.

Are you interested in the history, literature and culture of classical and ancient civilizations? Is a career in research something you aspire to? Then this track is just what you are looking for.

This two-year Research Master's track is a track of the three different Research Master's degrees programmes, namely in History, Literary Studies, and Classics and Ancient Civilizations. As such, Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies offers a multidisciplinary environment. Depending on your background and research interests, you will decide on your main subject. You can focus on history and choose between Ancient, Medieval or Early Modern History. You can also focus on literature. Then your options are Latin, Greek, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch or German Literature.

The track studies Classical Antiquity, the Middle Ages and Early Modernity in Europe and the Middle East. You will explore the similarities and differences between these periods. In addition, you will gain fundamental insights into the cultural changes that preceded the modern period.

PhD student at the University of Groningen

After completing my Bachelor's degree programme in English Language and Culture I was on the lookout for more depth and specialization. This Research Master's programme was just what I was looking for. I was also able to broaden my knowledge by following a number of private seminars and tutorials.

One of the most enjoyable and successful parts of my degree was the tutorial that I set up with my fellow students, The Skelton Project. We worked on a website with digital editions of poems by the medieval poet John Skelton...
In the Research Master’s programme we didn’t just conduct research, but developed other skills too. Organizing the CMRS conference in the first year, for instance, was good preparation for the organizational side of the academic world. If I hadn’t made the decision to do the Research Master’s track in Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies I wouldn’t be where I am now as a PhD student at the University of Groningen. In my PhD research, I am analysing medieval manuscripts containing agricultural texts that English landowners would have read. I became interested in this topic as I was researching the development of agricultural treatises for my Master's thesis.
