As well as making a substantial contribution to the interdisciplinary MA in Medieval Studies offered by the Centre for Medieval Studies, the English Medieval School offers an MA in Medieval Literatures and Languages.

The MA in Medieval Literatures and Languages is a one-year programme that allows you to study the whole range of medieval English literature - a dynamic, multilingual literary culture in which English interacted with many other languages and literatures. The MA caters both for those students who wish primarily to study the literature of medieval England, and those who wish to explore other medieval European literatures as well. Taught and supervised by world-leading scholars, with expertise in Latin, Old English, Middle English, Old Norse, Old French, medieval Italian, medieval Arabic, and Palaeography, you will learn a range of linguistic and technical skills which are essential for further medieval research.

Assessment

-Four assessed essays of approximately 4,500 words each

-A 14,000-16,000 word dissertation, written in consultation with a supervisor on an agreed topic
