Course summary

Our Medieval History MA will deepen your understanding of the European Middle Ages, while equipping you with the skills you need to explore this vast and significant period.

Taught through seminars and tutorials the programme will introduce you to a series of key concepts for the period. These include: the relation between medieval Europe and the classical past, Latin and vernacular languages, sainthood and medieval politics, economics and society, the Bible interpreted as a political manifesto, the records of royal government, the rise of the bureaucratic state, and kingship – both in the ideal and in reality.

Drawing upon the joint expertise of our course tutors, the course has a particular focus on the relations between England and the Continent in the period 900 to1400. And with the resources of our region including the vast collection of medieval documents held by the Norfolk Record Office and the cutting-edge archaeological investigations of Norwich Castle Museum – as well as national and international resources – primary sources will lie at the heart of your learning. Plus you’ll be given expert training on how to decipher the language and handwriting of the era.

Towards the end of the year you’ll work on your Master’s dissertation, which will give you the chance to put your skills into practice as you pursue an independent piece of historical research of your own devising. You’ll be supervised by one or more academics from the School, who will offer guidance and support throughout.

A Master’s in Medieval History from UEA will open up all kinds of career paths to you, but is also designed to prepare you for doctoral study.
