This two-year specialist programme offers a unique framework for research training in economic and social history. It offers a wide range of options and allows students to specialise in economic and/or social history, or historical demography, although the boundaries between these areas are deliberately permeable. Students will be introduced to the wide variety of methods used in the study of economic and social history, as well as to the subject itself. The core qualifying papers provide an opportunity to evaluate a range of different qualitative and quantitative methodological approaches; they impart a common language, and create a close and friendly community, in which ideas are shared, and strong personal ties are forged, developing a community that provides a base from which to venture out and experience the intellectual, social and cultural rewards of Oxford.
