The interdisciplinary MA in Medieval Studies is located within the School of Archaeology, History and Anthropology, but draws on the expertise of members of staff in different disciplines – History, English, Archaeology, and Celtic Studies – both for core modules and for the more discipline specific modules which form the various pathways.
We have a long tradition of specialist teaching in the medieval period at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Students will be able to engage with several important and high profile research projects, such as ‘Strata Florida’, and ‘Monastic Wales’. The overseas networks established (for instance with Ireland) through these projects enhance their reputation while at the same time offer research opportunities for students. The programme offers a high quality student experience through a unique programme of study taught by a range of experts within the field of Medieval Studies.

“I had been away from formal study for some time and had not studied at postgraduate level so my expectations were general - interest, challenge and new areas. It has met these expectations well… I could not find a taught medieval master’s locally in Melbourne. This was the best distance learning course I could find in terms of the modules it offered and UWTSD has experience in distance learning study… [The best things about the course are] the module content, essay feedback and prompt and supportive emails from the tutor.” - Anna Wells, MA Medieval Studies (online), Melbourne, Australia
“I am enjoying it so far. My tutor (and all the other staff I have dealt with) is very knowledgeable and helpful and the subject matter is fascinating… I knew that I wanted to study medieval history and was particularly attracted to the course because it dealt with monastic history and had a tutor who was a recognised authority in that area. Also because it was available to study by distance learning and the cost is very reasonable” - Stephanie O'Donoghue, PG Cert Medieval Studies.
“I like both the course subjects and the module conveners who have all given good feedback on assignments… I first chose to study with UWTSD as they offered a distance learning programme in a field in which I was interested. I enjoyed my time as a DL student and decided to continue on with another programme which was also of interest to me.”
