The Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies brings together academic staff members from all the schools in the Faculty of Humanities, and offers postgraduate training in medieval and earlymodern research methods to students from many different disciplines.
The Centre has a reputation as a vigorous and supportive community of teachers and postgraduate students, with a strong, focused identity.
Our location in the historic city of Canterbury offers you the opportunity to experience medieval and early modern art and architecture at first hand. The Centre enjoys a close relationship with Canterbury Cathedral Archives, the Cathedral Library and Canterbury Archaeological Trust, allowing you access to a wide range of unique historical, literary and material documents. We are also in easy reach of London and continental Europe.
This unique interdisciplinary programme provides the opportunity for intensive historical, literary and art-historical study. It challenges you to engage with the evidence and methods of different disciplines in order to equip you with the wide range of research techniques crucial for studying the period.
The MA provides a thorough grounding in the skills required for advanced study in the medieval and early modern periods, as well as a compulsory module in disciplinary methods and an exciting and varied range of optional modules. In addition, you produce a final dissertation of 12-15,000 words, for which you receive one-to-one supervision.
The following modules are indicative of those offered on this programme. This list is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year. Most programmes will require you to study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also have the option to take modules from other programmes so that you may customise your programme and explore other subject areas that interest you.
