New MA programme in Renaissance Latin Culture, UC Cork
University College Cork, a constituent of the National University of Ireland, is offering a new one-year MA in Renaissance Latin Culture, which will be commencing for the first time in September 2016. Grounded in the research and pedagogy at the Centre for Neo-Latin Studies in Cork, the new programme is specifically focused upon the revival of Classical Latin language and culture during the Renaissance (c.1300-1600). There is a significant language component, including some instruction in spoken Latin as part of an examination of renaissance educational culture. The course is open to students who have no prior knowledge of Latin, as well as to intermediate and advanced students – language courses and research topic are adapted accordingly.
The MA programme is ideal for students who wish to pursue research into renaissance history and literature while gaining a thorough grounding in the Latin language and the cultural issues pertaining to it in the early-modern period. The programme is also designed to cater for students with advanced prior knowledge of Latin who wish to pursue specific studies in Neo-Latin language, literature and scholarship.
The MA is available both full-time and part-time (i.e. over one or two years). More details can be found at the following links:
