Bristol's importance as medieval England's second city and a major maritime port for trade and exploration makes it an excellent setting for interdisciplinary intellectual exchange. The Centre for Medieval Studies in the Faculty of Arts has internationally recognised expertise in a wide range of subject areas.
A significant number of graduates from the Medieval Studies programme offered by the University of Bristol develop careers as academics in higher education. Others move into academic-related jobs in archives, libraries or academic administration, with many maintaining the capacity to undertake new and innovative research in the field of medieval studies, comparative literature and the history of the book. Some come to medieval studies as mature students in retirement and go on to become independent researchers.
