About Medieval Studies with Latin at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Course Overview

The Medieval studies with Latinprogramme 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.

Knowledge of Latin not only gives you direct access to some of the greatest works of Latin literature, such as Virgil's Aeneid, thus giving you a unique foundation for studying modern languages, for example French, Italian and Spanish, but is particularly useful for the study of various medieval documents, engravings and manuscripts. With first-hand knowledge of Latin, you can also explore all aspects of the Medieval world and its heritage in the medieval and modern periods. At Trinity Saint David you can study Latin starting at any level, including beginners, and continue it throughout your degree.
