The MLitt in Mediaeval Studies is an interdisciplinary programme run by the St Andrews Institute of Medieval Studies (SAIMS).

Highlights

  • Draws on the long-established and recognised strengths in Medieval Studies available from the participating disciplines – Art History, Divinity, English, History, Modern Languages and Philosophy.
  • Gives students the opportunity to work closely with colleagues covering a vast range of expertise from Late Antiquity to the 15th century and across the medieval world, from the Middle East and the Mediterranean to the British Isles and Scandinavia.
  • Introduces different theoretical approaches, current debates and the nature of cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary work in the fields of history, art history, languages and literature.
  • Offers an opportunity to combine training in manuscript studies and palaeography with interdisciplinary work or single discipline modules.
  • Includes weekly seminars and regular workshops, bringing students into direct contact with visiting academics.

Teaching format

The course comprises two semesters of taught modules followed by a three-month focused period for writing a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.

Teaching methods include seminars, language classes and fortnightly tutorials, with class sizes ranging from individual supervision up to around 12 students. The modules are assessed entirely through coursework; the 'Core Language and Text Skills' modules are assessed on a pass or fail basis.

Conferences and events

SAIMS hosts interdisciplinary conferences and weekly seminars. In addition, the School of History runs a Medieval History Postgraduate Seminar Series which is intended to provide a space for postgraduates at all stages to present ideas, discuss research issues, and gain some practical presentation experience.

Careers

As well as pursuing study at PhD level, other graduates of the course have gone on to pursue careers in a range of sectors including:

  • journalism
  • publishing
  • archives
  • government
  • law
  • management
  • teaching.

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
