Summary

This MA introduces you to the interdisciplinary study of the Medieval and Early Modern periods. You will explore through this MA the material, textual and cultural evidence of these periods from historical, archaeological, literary and musicological perspectives in order to reach a fuller, richer and more nuanced understanding of the medieval and early modern past. This will involve hands-on experience of sites and collections both in the local area, including privileged access to Salisbury Cathedral Library and Archives, and abroad during a one-week trip to a major European city, such as Rome or Paris. The MA delivers essential skills for independent research on the Medieval and Early Modern periods, in particular Palaeography and Manuscript Studies, Latin or another foreign language, so that you can progress to PhD study at Southampton or elsewhere. The MA is taught by specialists from History, English, Archaeology and Music disciplines with research interests ranging from the seventh-century Middle East to seventeenth-century musical and dramatic performance. Staff and students belong to an interdisciplinary university research centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture which runs a regular research seminar and other events that further enrich the learning environment for this MA.

Modules

The MA comprises 120 credits (CATS) of taught modules plus a 15,000-word dissertation worth 60 credits. You will take two core modules (From Medieval to Renaissance: Parts 1 and 2, together worth 45 credits) which provide training in research skills, including Palaeography; a compulsory module in Latin or another foreign language (30 credits); and two or three optional modules (totalling 45 credits) from a list of interdisciplinary and single-discipline courses in Archaeology, English Literature, History and Music.

Summary

Our MA programme is team-taught with a rich diversity of historical research. Many modules have an interdisciplinary focus, with an appeal to the specialisms of students with a variety of backgrounds in historically-oriented disciplines.

A distinctive feature of the MA is the core module, Public History, exploring how history is communicated to a wider audience. This seeks to enhance employability, especially for those interested in pursuing history-related careers outside academia. You may also choose modules in other Humanities disciplines likely to improve your skills, especially in foreign languages such as French, German or Latin.

Modules

Historiography; research skills 1 and 2; dissertation; plus 3 optional modules from pathways in: medieval early modern history; modern British/colonial history; modern European history; transatlantic history.
