University of Wales Trinity Saint David has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
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
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.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
