Overview

The Collaborative Specialization in Editing Ancient and Medieval Texts offers intensive training in the editing of medieval Latin and vernacular texts, including music. Training in all areas is based on a sound knowledge of Latin, a facility in examining manuscript documents, and an understanding of the principles of editorial method.

Students can choose to focus on editing texts in Latin, texts in Old and Middle English, or texts in other vernacular languages. Students complete a series of courses that deal with the techniques of reading, transcribing, and editing manuscripts, an​d then complete an editorial project. Upon successful completion of the PhD requirements of the participating home graduate unit and the collaborative specialization, students will receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Editing Ancient and Medieval Texts” on their transcript.
