Course content

As a student on the MA in Medieval and Early Modern Studies you will take two core modules, to develop your research skills and explore key historical and critical questions. You will also take two further modules from a broad set of options allowing you to follow up your own interests. You will write a 15,000-word dissertation supervised by one of Durham's specialists, allowing you to focus on a topic of your choice. This may be interdisciplinary or focused primarily on one of the individual disciplines that make up the course. All elements of the course have embedded within them a range of content, subject-specific skills, and key skills.

Our MA students work with our specialists across the Arts, Humanities, Sciences, and Social Sciences, including Archaeology, Classics, English, History, Modern Languages, Theology, Earth Sciences, Oriental Studies, Philosophy and Music.

Our two core modules, Reading the Medieval and Early Modern Past, and Writing the Medieval and Early Modern Past, develop advanced skills in interpreting and using a range of different kinds of source-material, including textual material and visual culture.
