FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE MEDIEVAL STUDIES AND ARCHAEOLOGY: • Wide range of modules, focusing on lots of different places, themes, subjects and people, from peasants to princes, manuscripts to miracles, and Crusaders to Chaucer. • Hands-on approach which allows students to get to grips with medieval manuscripts and chronicles. • A wide choice of different modules and topics to choose in Archaeology, which provide students with practical fieldwork experience, laboratory bases courses, as well as an understanding of key theoretical approaches in the discipline. • Work placement opportunities with local archaeology trusts, CADW, National Trust and so on. • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
This degree combines the academic study of Medieval Studies and Archaeology. The Medieval Studies programme at UWTSD allows students to explore many different aspects of this rich and vibrant period of history. It combines a study of change over time in broad sweeping survey modules with more focused, topic-centred modules. Each module is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, always in small groups. The teaching is research-led, rooted in the professional interests and expertise of the lecturers. Students will encounter multiple approaches to and source materials for our understanding of the medieval past, with a particular focus on utilising the onsite archive of manuscript and printed primary sources. This results in a rounded and comprehensive programme of study, which grounds students in the requisite theories, methodologies and practices of the discipline of history. Archaeology is the study of the human past through an examination of physical remains such as stone tools, pottery and bones, through to buildings, structures, monuments and landscapes. It attempts to reveal how both contemporary societies and past societies are organised, how humanity interacts with the environments and landscapes, and how ideas about the world are visible in the objects people have created. There is a strong sense of community among students and staff, and the ratio of staff to students is such that students can access their lecturers when needed. The small classes are always friendly and never intimidating, allowing staff to know their students on a first-name basis.
Assessments will vary from module to module to ensure that students are able to improve, develop, and practise a broad range of skills. Students may be assessed through essays, group projects, presentations, portfolios, reviews or exams.
