Course content

The city of Exeter is the perfect setting for our MA in Medieval Studies. Exeter is a medieval city full of medieval remains, and not just architecture but access to source documents and real history too such as the Cathedral, Cathedral Library and the Exeter Book.

It’s not just the location that you benefit from in Exeter either. We are one of the largest History Departments in the UK and that allows us to offer a diversity that is rarely matched elsewhere. Our students receive expert input and one-to-one attention from academic staff with shared specialisms which makes both learning and teaching a genuinely collaborative experience.

As a large department with excellent links to the local and national heritage sector we are in an excellent position to help you whether you are planning on progressing to PhD study, pursuing a profession, or simply exploring a passion for medieval history.

If you choose to join our community of academic staff and postgraduate students you will also become part of the College of Humanities, which gives you plenty of options to explore interdisciplinary work. Classics, Theology and Archaeology have special relevance to Medieval Studies but these are far from the only possibilities.
