Skills and Sources Modules

All Skills and Sources Modules are worth 15 credits.  These modules MUST be taken in conjunction with the matching parent module (see full course list).

The MARS MA is distinguished from other similar MAs by its special emphasis on the skills medievalists needs for advanced research.  The intensive Latin, Medieval English Book and Manuscripts course are salient examples but even selected courses that are not explicitly skills orientated  can be enhanced by a 15-credit ‘Skills and Sources’ component designed to inculcate research techniques with special reference to the content of the course. The assessment for these courses which build on courses students are already taking focuses specifically on issues of source criticism and evaluation and/or technical skills needed for advanced research on such sources (e.g. palaeographical, linguistic etc)
