The Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies was founded in 1996 at the University of York and is based at the historic King's Manor in the heart of the city. Its staff members are drawn from the departments of Archaeology, English, History, and History of Art. The Centre has a lively research community within which students can individually and collaboratively pursue their interests in the history, culture, politics, literature, art and society of the period.
Our highly successful MA in Eighteenth Century Studies offers a wide choice of taught and practical modules. As an MA student at York, you'll combine your own specialised research with intensive seminar study under the guidance of a leading authority in your field.
If you're interested in pursuing a research degree, our staff are experts on a wide range of topics. We're always happy to hear research proposals, so please get in touch.
