Course summary

The MRes in Medieval Studies is an interdisciplinary programme enabling students to study the Medieval period from a range of different subject disciplines that embraces History, Literature, Theology, Celtic studies and Archaeology.

We have a long tradition of specialist teaching in the medieval period at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and students may engage with several important and high-profile research projects, such as ‘Strata Florida’, and ‘Monastic Wales’.

The University has a well-established record of research and teaching in the Medieval period. Its provision at all levels has enabled students to study the Medieval and Early Modern period drawing on specialist staff expertise and resources, particularly the holdings of the Special Collections of the Roderic Bowen Library: a unique resource which houses the Special Collections of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, including over 35,000 printed works, 8 medieval manuscripts, around 100 post medieval manuscripts, and 69 incunabula.

The MRes in Medieval Studies offers a high-quality student experience through a unique programme of study taught by a range of experts within the field of Medieval Studies.
