The Medieval and Early Modern Studies degree will develop your critical abilities within a vibrant department of like-minded students and scholars.
On this course, you will work collaboratively with the Department of English and Creative Writing, and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion. You will select modules that allow you to study the history of the period between 300 and 1700 as well as the complimentary culture, languages, literature and politics of the time, ranging from Celtic Britain to seventeenth-century Europe.
On this programme, the core first year History module is designed to extend and deepen your knowledge of the past and introduce you to major historical topics and themes from the ancient world to the present day. You will gain insights into how historians conduct research, interpret the past, and develop your own research, essay-writing and presentational skills. You will also need to study our English Literature module in your first year.
You will be able to choose additional modules to complement core elements of your study.
