Course content

This degree offers you the opportunity to make a special study of the medieval period, considering the richness and diversity of its literature, art and history. The course runs alongside the MA Medieval History, and we have close links to other departments at Birkbeck. So you will be able to tailor this course to suit your personal interests by choosing to study relevant option modules and pursue an independent research component.

You can also choose to study in either an interdisciplinary or a more literary way, and use this course as preparation for doctoral research.

As a student at Birkbeck, you will have access to some of the best resources in the world for medieval research - we are close to many renowned research libraries, galleries, museums and manuscript repositories. On this course, we will teach you the skills you need to explore these riches in original and scholarly ways.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
