Subject:	Manchester University Medieval and Early Modern Literature: MA 
and Postgraduate Programme

The MA in Medieval and Early Modern Literature is now accepting 
applications for study in 2008-09. This innovative programme regularly 
attracts and trains the best graduate students in the field with its 
blend of texts and practical sessions.

The teaching staff, which includes Naomi Baker, Anke Bernau, Jerome de 
Groot, David Matthews, Gale Owen-Crocker, Jackie Pearson and Alexander 
Rumble, has an international reputation in a number of the most 
important themes that are currently stimulating scholarly debate

You will be taught cutting edge, hands-on research techniques as well as 
key theoretical approaches; you will be able to use a world-class 
research library; you will be part of a dynamic graduate community. You 
may choose to work on interdisciplinary Anglo-Saxon Studies, on Middle 
English or Early Modern texts, or can choose to select thematically 
related course-units from across the full scope and date-range of the 
programme. We regularly have postgraduate master classes run by leaders 
in the field such as Alan Sinfield, Ann Hughes, Catherine Belsey, 
Stephen Knight and Sharon Achinstein.

What our students say about us: 'I've really enjoyed studying for a PhD 
at Manchester. The postgraduate community in English and American 
Studies is very supportive, and my supervisors were excellent. It was 
also exciting to be involved with an interdisciplinary research 
environment, with lots of opportunities for interaction with other 
subject areas.'
