The Medieval and Renaissance Studies MA
UCL's MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MARS) is an innovative interdisciplinary programme taught and run by leading professors and scholars in the field. The MA is 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time. MARS is demanding, cosmopolitan and stimulating. We place particular emphasis on equipping students who want to do PhDs with the skills they need. We are based in the heart of London's Bloomsbury, at the centre of an exceptional confluence of libraries and museums.
Our experienced current external examiner says:
'I am very impressed by UCL's Medieval and Renaissance Studies MA course. The wide range of options, including the possibility to study not only Latin, but various medieval vernaculars, manuscripts and a variety of topics at a very high level, is remarkable. The standard of both the examinations and dissertations was overall very high. It was a pleasure to see that so many students engaged seriously with original sources, including manuscripts, in a thoroughly professional manner. Some of the dissertations were of publishable quality, and I hope many students go on to a PhD. I would strongly recommend the programme to any student with a serious interest in medieval history.'
Our previous external examiner (to 2011), an experienced medievalist and Fellow of the British Academy, says:
Everything I see in the conception, teaching and assessment of courses is of the very highest standards. The UCL MA provides the best pre-PhD technical training of any MA of which I have any knowledge. Given the remarkable quality of the course, and the extraordinary care, skill and enthusiasm with which they are taught and supervised, it is wholly unsurprising that a high proportion gain distinctions.'
