Taught by specialist staff from the disciplines of History, English, Music and Archaeology, and including modules in Latin and Palaeography, this interdisciplinary programme is designed to equip you with the range of skills you need in order to undertake high-level research in all aspects of the medieval and the Renaissance.
The programme comprises six taught modules (four compulsory modules and two options) plus a dissertation. Full-time students will take all taught modules during two semesters and complete their dissertation by the following September. Part-time students will take the taught modules over four semesters, and complete their dissertation by the September of the second year. In the core module, ‘From Medieval to Renaissance: Reading the Evidence', you will explore the fascinating history, religion, politics and culture of the medieval and early modern periods and will be taught how to access, read and analyse key primary sources from the period. All students are required to follow a Latin module, which will familiarise you with the classical and medieval forms of the language, as well as a Palaeography module which will enable you to read original documents in Latin and English. Two optional modules then allow you to explore and pursue your own interests within the period in greater detail.
