The MA in Medieval and Early Modern Studies is based at the John Rylands Research Institute at The University of Manchester. The John Rylands Research Institute was launched in 2013 in response to the changing landscape of research in the arts, notably the increase in opportunities for collaboration between the traditionally distinct fields of arts and sciences. The Institute is based at the John Rylands Library, which has world-leading collections of manuscript, printed and visual material. Teaching on the interdisciplinary MA in Medieval and Early Modern Studies is delivered in partnership with the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, with input from curators from the John Rylands Library.

This programme offers students an opportunity to pursue interests in the literatures, histories, and cultures of Europe in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Staff teaching on this MA represent the disciplines of History, Art History and Visual Studies, English, Religions and Theology, Classics, and European Languages.
