We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Our Medieval History MA will deepen your understanding of the European Middle Ages, while equipping you with the skills you need to explore this vast and significant period.
Taught through seminars and tutorials the programme will introduce you to a series of key concepts for the period. These include: the relation between medieval Europe and the classical past, Latin and vernacular languages, sainthood and medieval politics, economics and society, the Bible interpreted as a political manifesto, the records of royal government, the rise of the bureaucratic state, and kingship – both in the ideal and in reality.
Drawing upon the joint expertise of our course tutors, the course has a particular focus on the relations between England and the Continent in the period 900 to1400.
