What Will You Study

The Medieval and Renaissance Studies degree will develop your critical abilities within a vibrant department of like-minded students and scholars.

You will work collaboratively with the Department of English and Creative Writing, the Department of Languages and Cultures and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion. You will select modules that allow you to study the history of the period between 300 and 1700 as well as the complimentary culture, languages, literature and politics of the time, ranging from Celtic Britain to seventeenth-century Europe.

On this programme the core first year module is designed to extend and deepen your knowledge of the past and introduce you to major historical topics and themes from the ancient world to the present day. You will gain insights into how historians conduct research and interpret the past and develop your own research, essay-writing and presentational skills.

You will be able to choose additional modules to compliment core elements of your study.
