Course summary

Programme overview

This genuinely interdisciplinary programme offers an innovative way of studying medieval culture and society. As a student, you will benefit from research-led teaching and skills-based training across a wide variety of disciplines, including history, literature, languages, manuscript studies, music, religion and classics.

Beyond the University, you can draw on the important archival, architectural and heritage resources of the city of Bristol – the medieval gateway to Europe – and the south-west region more widely. This means you have the unique opportunity to gain practical work experience with one of the University's partners in the cultural and heritage industries, training you as a professional medievalist with transferable skills for careers within and beyond academia.

At Bristol, you have access to one of the most active centres for medieval studies in the UK, comprising more than 30 staff members and approximately 20 postgraduate research students (MPhil/PhD) each year, who together form a lively and dynamic interdisciplinary community.

Every year, the Bristol Centre for Medieval Studies hosts a large number of research seminars, lectures and public talks. Staff who teach on the programme are members of the centre, and many have an international reputation in their respective fields.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.

Careers

Students who complete this programme are well placed to go into a career in either the academic sector or the cultural and heritage industries.

The programme’s focus is on the acquisition of practical and transferable skills for professional medievalists, including research skills, languages, manuscript skills (palaeography and codicology), archival study and heritage preservation. Together, these will equip graduates for research degrees or employment in culturally-oriented industries outside academia.
