Subjects

Medieval history

Latin language

**Five reasons to choose Medieval Studies and Latin:**

• Wide range of modules, focusing on lots of different places, themes, subjects and people, from peasants to princes, manuscripts to miracles, and Crusaders to Chaucer

• Modules based on lecturers' distinctive research expertise, such as history-writing and memory in the Middle Ages, medieval poetry and prose, and Cistercian monasteries

• Hands-on approach which allows students to get to grips with medieval manuscripts and chronicles

• Innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials

• Chance to acquire language skills

Modules

The Medieval studies with Latin programme can offer a range of modules which cover broad sweeps of time (Medieval Europe, 1066-1452, the Medieval Castle in Context:) allowing students to consider how societies alter and change, the long term impact of war, economic upheaval and political radicalism, and the rise and fall of great powers. In addition the programme offers modules based upon depth, drilling down into events and moments of seminal change (the Wars of the Roses, Chaucer’s comic tales, the Cistercians). This combination of breadth and depth provides students with an extensive knowledge of the past. Around this core of subject knowledge we root our teaching in documentary source materials, field trips, visits to archives and record offices, in addition to the tutor’s own research experiences. This all provides for a fully rounded programme of study which grounds students in the requisite methodologies and practices of the discipline of history.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

History is a very popular subject (although numbers have fallen of late) — in 2015, over 10,000 UK students graduated in a history-related course. Obviously, there aren't 11,000 jobs as historians available every year, but history is a good, flexible degree that allows graduates to go into a wide range of different jobs, and consequently history graduates have an unemployment rate comparable to the national graduate average. Many — probably most — jobs for graduates don't ask for a particular degree to go into them and history graduates are well set to take advantage. That's why so many go into jobs in the finance industry, human resources, marketing, PR and events management, as well as the more obvious roles in education, welfare and the arts. Around one in five history graduates went into further study last year. History and teaching were the most popular further study subjects for history graduates, but law, journalism, and politics were also popular postgraduate courses.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject has been a mainstay of the UK university system for centuries and is still going strong! Over 1000 graduates received classics degrees in 2015 and a quarter of those went on to further study, usually a Masters, and although many stayed with Classics, or moved slightly to history or archaeology, some changed to topics like law and teaching. Half of those who did go into work found jobs in London or the South East. Common jobs included working in education, marketing and advertising, or the finance industry as advisors or even accountants. Personal contacts were particularly important for these graduates in finding their first job, so good networks may help your job search when the time comes.

What about your long term prospects?

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
