Medieval Studies

York's Centre for Medieval Studies is the oldest interdisciplinary centre for postgraduate study of the Middle Ages in Great Britain, and it is also one of the most respected centres in the world. It is one of the few institutions in the world where postgraduate students undertake interdisciplinary research in Medieval Studies. The faculty are world experts in their fields, the whole atmosphere is friendly and supportive, and a PhD from York is well regarded throughout the world when you move on to seek academic employment. Students studying toward the PhD in Medieval Studies work on research projects that span or blur traditional disciplinary boundaries, and are supervised jointly by staff specialising in 2 different subject areas. Subject areas include Archaeology, Art and Architectural History, History (social, economic, political, cultural, ecclesiastical, intellectual and gender) and Literature (including Old and Middle English, Old Norse, Latin, Italian, French), Viking studies, codicology and palaeography. Tuition can be offered in medieval languages (Medieval Latin, Old English, Old French, Old Norse). Palaeography and Diplomatic are taught by specialists in the early, high and late Middle Ages. Modern language teaching can be provided by the university's Languages for All centre.
