Part-time MA by Research Studentships available in the fields of Methodist History and Culture and Religious History.

The Department of History, Philosophy and Religion are pleased to offer two MA by Research studentships, one in the field of Methodist History and Culture and the second in the field of Religious History.

Both studentships are offered part-time and will be supervised by staff from the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History (OCMCH).

Applications are invited for proposals in a field of either Religious History or Methodist History in the seventeenth, eighteenth or nineteenth centuries. Research supervision from the OCMCH can be offered in the following fields: Religion in Britain 1660-1900, Church and State in the Eighteenth Century, Religion and Art in the Eighteenth Century, History and Historical Theology of Methodism and Evangelicalism 1700-1900, History of post-reformation Wales, Book History and Biographical Study in the period 1600-1900.

Previous studentshave gone on to take PhDs and have gained book contracts with Routledge and Oxford University Press.

This is a great opportunity for a scholar interested in religious history to explore an area of interest in depth and to use the resources of the Centre and the University to obtain a research degree.

Professor William Gibson, Director of the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History

The successful candidates will receive funding to cover the costs of the University’s part-time research degree fees, currently £2,112, for two years.
