(Last updated in 2009)



This list of Early Modern and Shakespearean Masters degrees is a work in progress that aims to eventually list all British taught Masters degree courses with a title or named pathway that focuses upon Shakespearean or Early Modern topics (focussing on courses equivalent to an MA in Shakespeare Studies, MA in Early Modern Literature, MA in Early Modern History, and interdisciplinary MA in Early Modern Studies).  If you know of any courses that should be listed in this directory, but which are not currently included, please email me at shakespearean@shakespearean.org.uk .
