Overview

On the Medieval and Renaissance Studies pathway you’ll study the myriad ways in which power was understood, communicated and exercised during the Middle Ages and Renaissance period (c.300-c.1700 CE).

The programme draws on our considerable medieval and early modern expertise across history, literature, languages, and archaeology. We examine issues such as:-

- the notions and exercise of secular and spiritual authority
- the operation of power in medieval and early modern societies
- the development of conceptions of and attitudes to gender
- the construction of identities

You’ll become skilled in the advanced research methods and techniques needed to read and interpret original sources. There’ll also be training in languages and palaeography: vital attributes if you want to continue into doctoral research.

Students study two 30-credit core modules and four 15-credit research training modules, culminating in a 60- credit dissertation.

Our programmes are designed to provide students with a wide range of transferable skills. Our History taught programmes are designed to meet the training requirements of the AHRC and the ESRC and thus to equip you for further study towards an MPhil/PhD. However, our MA students go into a wide range of professions, including media, public sector management and school teaching, as well as academia.

Our vocational Masters in Archives and Records Management has a highly successful record with 90%of students in recent cohorts obtaining professional posts within six months of graduation. Our research students have a good record of finding academic posts or postdoctoral fellowships. Recent doctoral students hold posts at universities such as London, Nottingham and Manchester.
