BA Medieval History
We offer a unique course on the history and culture of Britain, Europe and Islam during the Middle Ages, taught by a team of scholars of international reputation. We offer a broad perspective on the medieval world of Europe and the Middle East, with a particular emphasis on medieval religious cultures, the place of women and minorities in medieval society, and the history of the Crusades. For us, the history of the Middle Ages is not only a history of kings and battles, but also of religion and culture, of daily life activities such as cooking and time-keeping, as well as of creatures of the medieval imagination such as unicorns and monsters.
The BA in Medieval History is carefully structured to build on your A Level study as you develop the skills and knowledge that come with intensively studying medieval history. You will initially develop a broad knowledge of different strands of medieval history in Britain, Europe and the Islamic world. As your degree progresses you will increasingly specialize and study your subjects in great depth and detail. Click through for information about each year, modules, teaching and assessment.
