Why Glasgow

* The strength of this programme lies in the breadth of teaching and research at the Glasgow Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

* You can tailor the programme to your own interests and requirements, while gaining an excellent grounding in the technical skills required for advanced postgraduate work.

* You have a wide choice of languages to study which may include medieval Latin, Old English, Old Icelandic, medieval Welsh, Old Irish and Old French as well as a range of modern languages.
* There are a wealth of resources available for study, including a world-class collection of medieval and renaissance manuscripts and early printed books in the University Library, original works of art housed in Glasgow Museums, and regional architectural monuments and archaeological sites.
* We run our own series of guest speaker seminars and workshops, visit important regional medieval and early modern monuments and museum collections, and provide you with regular opportunities to meet for other academic and social events.

Career prospects

The programme provides an excellent preparation for PhD studies and an academic career. It also provides excellent training for museum, school and other related educational and vocational careers.

Contents

In the first teaching period, a team-taught core course will introduce you to a range of approaches, disciplines and research developments in medieval and renaissance studies. There is a focus on original manuscripts and printed books available in the outstanding collections in the University Library.

* supervised study on a specialist topic with an essay and oral presentation
* a medieval manuscript studies course, including palaeography training
* a specialist research methods course in renaissance studies, including palaeography training
* one or more language courses.

In the final part of the programme you will research and produce a dissertation on a topic approved by the MLitt convener and the potential supervisor.
