Course Summary

This course allows you to roam periods of history from the late antiquity to the renaissance, and geographies from the British Isles and France, to Italy and the Holy Land. Teaching is empowered by specialist Swansea University expertise, particularly in the areas of gender, warfare, aristocratic culture, and frontiers and borderlands.

Your study will be enhanced by the influential external connections of Swansea University. These include organisations responsible for preserving Welsh historical sites such as Cadw and the Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, as well as West Glamorgan Record Office and the library of Hereford Cathedral.

You will develop impressive transferable skills around research, writing and speaking, as you build confidence in presenting your ideas in different ways. Graduates from this course enter a range of industries including education, government, marketing and advertising. They also undertake research degrees and pursue a career in academia. On completion this course leads to PGDip in Medieval Studies.
