This interdisciplinary 180 credit programme offers you the opportunity to pursue your interest in the literatures, histories and cultures of Late Antiquity and the European Middle Ages (c. 350-1550 CE). Research in this fascinating area has a long and distinguished history at the University of Manchester, and we have a lively research culture, with talks, seminars and conferences that you will be able to attend in addition to your taught courses. You will also be able to draw on the expertise of scholars engaged in cutting-edge research at the John Rylands Research Institute, where the programme is based. The John Rylands Library houses exceptional medieval treasures (which are currently being digitised) and offers many exciting research and study opportunities. Staff teaching on this MA represent the disciplines of History, Art History, English, Religions and Theology, Classics, and European Languages.
