Leigh, MA in Renaissance Literature, 1500-1700

I chose to come to York because the Renaissance school within the Department of  English and Related Literature is very highly regarded. I particularly liked that they stated one of their specialisms within the Renaissance was 'The History of Science and Medicine', as it is the field I am interested in. Since I have arrived, I have enjoyed every second of it and I've felt incredibly lucky to have been taught by numerous people within the Renaissance school. It's meant that I've had the benefit of different scholars from specific specialisms within the Renaissance which means that I've learnt a lot and developed my knowledge further.
