Description

About the courseThe medieval past captures our imagination. Castles, abbeys and churches are some of the most visited heritage sites in Britain. TV and movies about the more bloodthirsty aspects of the

period are always popular.

Our optional work placement module gives you the chance to share your enthusiasm for the subject, working on a project with one of our partners in the arts, culture and heritage sectors. Through the Presenting the Past module, you get to work on an exhibition or a website.

We'll give you training in research skills. Supervised by an academic, you'll research and write a dissertation on an aspect of medieval history.
