About

The MA in Medieval Studies is an interdisciplinary program which draws on the range of expertise in medieval subjects at University College Dublin, offered across a variety of disciplines, including Archaeology, Art History, Classics, English, History, Irish, Languages, and Music. 

Overview

  • Interdisciplinary approach to the Middle Ages
  • Small group work
  • Opportunity to pursue individual research interests

Career

  • The MA in Medieval Studies at University College Dublin provides an excellent basis for further research in the field and work in such related sectors as education, tourism, and cultural affairs. The organisational, interpretive and communication skills provided by this masters are valued across the professions.
  • The MA in Medieval Studies is for students who wish to study the Middle Ages at a high level and across different disciplines. It aims to provide an education that is at the same time rigorous and wide-ranging, providing essential research skills while allowing students to choose from a variety of courses. Our students come from different academic backgrounds and choose a range of career paths. What they have in common is an interest in the medieval world, and an eagerness to explore different ways of investigating and understanding that world. 
  • We value an interdisciplinary approach to the Middle Ages: students are allowed to choose from relevant subjects in History, English, Irish, Archaeology, Languages, Classics and Music, from Ireland to Byzantium and from the fall of the Roman Empire to the dawn of the Renaissance. We use complementary learning and assessment methods, culminating in a research dissertation. Students are introduced to research methods and skills in small groups, working with their peers; they attend classes on specialist subjects of their choice; they work with a supervisor on a dissertation subject. They are taught by specialists in their field and are encouraged to participate in the community of medieval scholars at UCD through seminars and reading groups. As such, it is a suitable preparation for intending to go on to a research degree or a professional career, or for those who simply want to extend their understanding of the medieval period.
