This Master's degree in history considers the culture and society of the medieval period, which is usually understood as stretching from the transformation of the Roman Empire to the Renaissance.
This programme enables students to study literature in English from the eighth to the seventeenth century, including a selection of the period’s major works, such as Beowulf, The Faerie Queene, and Paradise Lost, and some of its major writers, such as Chaucer, the Gawain poet, Shakespeare and Donne, as well as non-canonical and non-literary works by lesser-known authors.
We are interested in hearing from students with research proposals covering all aspects of medieval and early modern history, life and culture.
It is our aim to develop in our students the skills required to submit a satisfactory MPhil thesis at the end of their chosen duration (one year full-time or two years part-time).
Literature is a dynamic force for change. Hull English postgraduates gain insight into society, culture and politics by developing an understanding of the power of language.
