Course programme

This Master’s will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to undertake independent historical research at an advanced level. You will exercise these skills in your dissertation, but the course is also designed to prepare you for doctoral study, should this prove desirable and feasible.

You will be given training in Medieval Latin and Medieval palaeography over the course of the two semesters. You will also take part in the core module, a weekly seminar called England and the Continent in the High Middle Ages, which also runs over two semesters. This is team-taught by several members of our faculty, giving you insight into a variety of specialist areas of the field and the most up-to-date research in the subject. The module may cover the following themes and topics: society 970–1066; Domesday Book; letter collections; historical writing; charters; the royal household; royal record keeping; urban communities 1200–1500; rural communities 1200–1500; monasticism; the Church; canon law; and Magna Carta.

Towards the end of the year you will work on your dissertation, which is a chance to put your skills into practice and pursue an independent piece of historical research of your own devising. You will be supervised by one or more members of the School, gaining guidance and support throughout the process.
