About the course

This multidisciplinary MA, taught in conjunction with the Museum of London and the English and Modern Language departments, has gained a high international reputation. It introduces students to many different aspects of medieval society and culture while allowing them to concentrate on particular areas of interest. It also emphasises research skills, whether literary or historical, and provides an introduction to a wide range of source materials. Students are prepared thoroughly for the dissertation that completes the course, and they can then, if they wish, develop their detailed work into convincing proposals for further research at doctoral level.
