About

The Medieval Studies programme from University of Leeds takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the medieval period, covering a broad range of contexts. You will receive rigorous training in Latin, develop key skills in text interpretation, translation and research.

Overview

Whether you’re a complete beginner or have some experience of learning Latin, our intensive language course will develop your skills to an advanced level enabling you to study a wide range of original source medieval texts. You'll also develop skills in palaeography (the study of historical handwriting), primary text analysis and translation.

As well as medieval Latin, we also offer you the opportunity to broaden your languages abilities by studying vernacular languages such as medieval French, Old Norse or Old English. The benefit of this is that you will be able to widen the range of texts that you study as part of your learning and research.

The Institute for Medieval Studies (IMS) brings together staff from across the University of Leeds who are medieval specialists within a broad range of disciplines. As such, we’re able to offer a huge range of optional modules from subject areas ranging from history to religion and literature to history of art. This gives you the opportunity to tailor your course to your specific interests within the field of medieval studies and to your future career ambitions.

As a student in the IMS you'll have access to excellent resources, both in the University and beyond. The world-class Brotherton Library contains extensive facsimiles and microfilms of primary materials as well as a wide range of online resources.

Career opportunities

This Medieval Studies programme from University of Leeds is excellent preparation for further study in related fields. It will also equip you with advanced research, communication and analytical skills that are valuable to employers in a wide range of careers such as in museums and business.

We offer a range of paid opportunities for you to gain experience that can really help with your career plans. You’ll be able to provide a mock tutorial for first-year undergraduates during their induction week, or become an academic mentor for final-year students as they complete their dissertations to gain experience of teaching, one-to-one communication and people management.
