Graduate students in the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies receive their degrees in History.  For general achievement outcomes please refer to the Graduate Program page of the Department of History.

In addition to the requirements of the graduate program in History, Division students have to fulfill the following for their degrees in Early Modern European History:

*   additional coursework: Division students attend History 696F (Early Modern Europe) every semester
*   reading knowledge of three languages (eight semester of Latin, and usually German and French, in some cases other languages required for their research. e.g. Spanish or Italian)

Before Division students embark on long-term archival research in Europe, they complete:
*   paleography studies and courses
*   language courses, e.g. summer courses of the Goethe Institute in Germany
*   exploratory trips to the relevant archives (for which some financial assistance is available through the Division and the Department of History)


Division students have been successful in applying for major grants to conduct archival research in Europe. Among many others, Division students have been awarded Fulbright, DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), Mellon, Chateaubriand, and Leibniz Institute of European History (Mainz, Germany) fellowships.
