Overview

Aspects of the medieval past continue to fascinate the public imagination. Medieval castles, abbeys and churches are some of the most frequently visited heritage sites in Britain, while television programmes about the more bloodthirsty aspects of the period prove consistently popular.

Our optional work placement module gives you the chance to share your enthusiasm for the subject, working on a project with one of our partners in the arts, culture and heritage sectors.

Whatever your particular area of interest, the MA Medieval History allows you to carry out specialist research under expert supervision.
