As part of the MA in Medieval History at University College Cork, our postgraduates create and publish an online exhibition. In the past, we have created exhibitions on the Book of Kells, the Luttrell Psalter, and medieval and early modern maps of Cork city.
You will encounter medieval sources that are being radically reinterpreted in the light of exciting new research by course lecturers. The course is designed to give you a thorough grounding in research skills while providing maximum freedom to follow your own research interests.
You will have the opportunity to demonstrate your own ability to engage with historical sources in writing your research dissertation, and to apply your knowledge in the working environment of a museum. You will also adapt your research and analytical skills to a variety of non-academic contexts or, alternatively, to undertaking further research.
The taught modules in the MA are evenly spread across both the Autumn and Spring semesters, enabling you to balance your work commitments across the academic year, and to leave Semester Three for your research and the writing of your thesis.
- Historical contexts for medievalists (Hi6088), is a module in which all the MA in Medieval History lecturers collaborate to provide you with a solid grounding in the field, and to give you foundation for the more specialised modules to follow.
