Areas of particular staff expertise include gender, warfare, aristocratic culture, and frontiers and borderlands. Students have the opportunity to become familiar with the medieval heritage of South Wales and the surrounding region, through work with the West Glamorgan Record Office and the library of Hereford Cathedral and through contact with the organisations that are responsible for the preservation of Welsh historical sites, Cadw and the Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historical Movements of Wales.
Modules typically include: Fin'amor and marriage in the medieval English secular lyric; introduction to advanced medieval studies 1 (skills and approaches); introduction to advanced medieval studies 2 (themes and sources); medieval languages; medieval manuscripts; postgraduate Latin; saints and sinners in Christian late antiquity; the medieval frontier; Venice and the sea.
The dissertation is written on a specialist research topic of the student's choosing.
