Course content

Our Canterbury Campus, located in a UNESCO World Heritage site and right in the heart of a Medieval cathedral city, is the perfect place to study Medieval and Early Modern Studies.

The course gives you the chance to study world history and culture from the end of the Roman Empire to the French Revolution.

Whilst our approach is global and comparative, we are fortunate to have many inspiring historical locations nearby. Canterbury Cathedral and Dover Castle are just two local sites of interest that you’ll study.

Why Study Medieval and Early Modern Studies?

Surrounded by the ancient sites of Canterbury Cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey, you'll be able to fully immerse yourself in this fascinating subject in our friendly and supportive campus.

You'll be taught by experienced and dedicated lecturers including some who have undertaken internationally recognised research. They'll share their enthusiasm with you and teach you all about the period from the fall of the Roman Empire to the Age of Enlightenment.

To complement your studies and broaden your knowledge, you'll be able to take modules in a range of humanities subjects, from archaeology, English literature and history to theology. As you progress through your degree, you'll choose from optional modules that allow you to focus on a historical period that most interests you.

For over 1400 years, since St. Augustine established his abbey in Canterbury, the city has been home to historians, theologians and scholars of great texts, making it an inspiring and captivating place to study your degree.
