Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Study for your Master’s degree in a region steeped in Medieval History. Taught by internationally recognised scholars, our course will help you get to grips with the major themes in political, ecclesiastical, social and cultural history of medieval England and Western Europe, with a focus on England and the Continent between 900 and 1400. A rich and diverse period, you’ll be studying with experts who are defining our understanding of the period. Primary sources will be at the heart of your studies. We have access to The Norfolk Record Office’s vast collection of medieval documents, as well as to the cutting-edge archaeological work of the Norwich Castle Museum. Graduates come from across the world to study for a Master’s in Medieval History with us. Many have gone on to undertake doctoral study, and this course could be your first step towards becoming a professional historian. However, the skills you’ll gain will also open doors to careers in heritage, teaching, law and research.
