University of Glasgow
Medieval and Renaissance Studies
This programme provides interdisciplinary training in a broad range of subject areas, covering many aspects of medieval and early modern culture. Students receive intensive training in current theories and research methods across disciplines, manuscript studies, palaeography and the medieval or modern languages most relevant to their research interests.
We normally expect applicants to have obtained a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject in medieval, renaissance or early modern studies. We also require a sample of written work from the applicant (up to around 3,000 words), a short statement of around 500 words outlining the applicant's interest in the programme, and at least 1 academic reference.
In the 1st teaching period, a team-taught core course introduces students to a range of approaches, disciplines and research developments in medieval and renaissance studies.
Students choose their dissertation topic by the end of the 2nd semester in a subject area offered by contributing subject areas following detailed consultation with the MLitt convener and the potential supervisor. The dissertation, which is to be submitted in early September, is a major study around 14,000�15,000 words in length.
