The course provides a grounding in the study of language, culture, and society from late antiquity to the end of the Middle Ages; the programme emphasises both the interdisciplinary investigation of this period as well as the development of skills necessary for further academic study; the interdisciplinary requirements of the course encourage students to view the past in a multidimensional way, while the emphasis on languages and source study provides students with the tools they need to make original contributions to scholarship. All students take a year-long seminar (sources and resources) focusing on palaeography and manuscript studies, but also taking in auxiliary sciences such as diplomatic, heraldry and art history, and including a teamwork, internet-based project on a medieval scriptorium. Students also take Latin and 1 other medieval language (no prior knowledge of these languages is required). By Semester 2, students will have identified a supervisor with whom they develop a dissertation topic through intensive bibliographical investigation, before completing their research and writing over the summer.
