This Masters degree in Ancient and Medieval Warfare, the only degree of its type in the UK, offers students the opportunity to study a range of regions, periods and specialist topics in detail. The programme of study is based on Cardiff's particular teaching and research expertise in warfare studies. The scheme offers a flexible programme designed to provide a thorough grounding in research skills and methods, and the opportunity to explore an area of independent research suitable for the needs and interests of individual students. It is designed to meet the needs of both those who wish to develop their understanding of Ancient and Medieval Warfare through a self-contained year of further study, and of those who wish to deepen and extend their skills in preparation for research at doctoral level.
* Detailed concentration on the history and development of warfare in the Ancient and Medieval worlds
* Literary, historical and archaeological approaches
* Opportunities for interdisciplinary approaches
* Expert supervision of dissertation topics
The course has two parts, consisting of coursework and a dissertation.
