Acquire a broad knowledge of the medieval period in the British Isles in this interdisciplinary programme.
The MA Medieval British Studies programme will allow you to develop a broad knowledge of the medieval period in the British Isles in this interdisciplinary programme.
Taught by medievalists active in the Centre for the Study of Medieval Society and Culture, you will discover fresh perspectives, building skills across medieval history, archaeology, English literature and Welsh.
We offer the flexibility to specialise to suit your interests and opportunities to evaluate a wide range of sources through newly-acquired skills such as palaeography and Medieval English or Latin.
How will I be taught?
You will be taught through a mix of seminars, lectures, tutorials and language classes (depending on modules chosen).
As part of the programme, you will be encouraged to deliver presentations to your fellow MA students within our supportive community.
On successful completion of the taught elements of the programme you will progress to a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on a topic or theme of your choice (subject to the approval of your supervisor).
How will I be supported?
On enrolment you are assigned your own Personal Tutor.
We offer one-to-one time in set office hours during teaching weeks, and also welcome email contact. Additionally, you can make appointments to see your personal tutor or module leaders on a one-to-one basis about any issues. Our Professional Services team is also available for advice and support.
Your personal tutor is your contact point to discuss any problems arising from the course. Further queries should be addressed to the Course Director.
Graduates of this degree programme have gone into jobs in the heritage sector, journalism, teaching, media research (media, commercial, academic), publishing and banking and to higher level PhD programmes.
