About Medieval History
Masters degrees in Medieval History examine the peoples, cultures and societies of the period 100-1500 AD, including analysis of significant historical events during this time.
Related subjects include World History and Heritage Studies. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as History or Archaeology.
The History of the Middle Ages is generally considered to have commence after the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century, lasting until the 15th century.
Popular research topics include the Renaissance and the Age of Discover, periods which are thought to have bridged the Middle Ages with Modern History. Issues covered within these movements include population decline, counter-urbanisation and migration, and political and religious flux.
For example, you may investigate what is known as the Migration Period, and why certain populations chose to migrate across parts of Europe during this time. Or, you might examine the rise of religion such as Islam in 7th and 8th centuries, or the development of Chistianity as two churches in the 11th century.
Careers may include academia such as teaching and publishing, historical research in the heritage industries, or even journalism.
