Course content

The MA in Medieval Studies is an introduction to the medieval cultures of Europe. New disciplines will complement your existing skills, offering you world-class teaching from the departments of Archaeology, English, History and History of Art. You'll learn to recognise how the subjects are inter-related, while exploring the fields of study that most interest you.

In the medieval city of York, inspiration is everywhere, and you'll have access to some of the UK's most important medieval records, including York Minster Library and Archives and the Borthwick Institute for Archives.

This course has successfully launched students into careers with a huge range of organisations involved in investigating and interpreting the Middle Ages, including English Heritage, National Trust, archives, libraries, museums, galleries, publishing companies, television companies and the media.
