Months of entry
In this programme, you’ll take an in-depth look at the fascinating history of Europe in the period between AD 400 and 1500 and form your own specialist interest, providing a foundation for doctoral study should you choose that route.
With more than 70 members of academic staff attached to our cross-disciplinary Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS), Edinburgh is a wonderful environment for medieval scholarship.
Through small, seminar-based classes, you’ll develop knowledge of the principal categories of surviving evidence and the technical skills needed to read them, namely palaeography, and linguistic knowledge (generally Latin), and learn the value of an interdisciplinary approach to medieval research.
World-class resources will be on hand to aid your studies, most notably the impressive collections of the National Library of Scotland and the University’s Main Library, one of the largest of its kind in Europe.
