Course details

Modules

This degree combines the academic study of Medieval Studies and Anthropology.

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.

Anthropology explores the fundamentals of what it means to be human. It takes the whole world as its point of interest and brings one face to face with the eye-opening variety of human behaviours both in the present and from the past. Anthropology students at UWTSD have the opportunity to observe and engage with communities and cultures first-hand. For instance, students are able to undertake Voluntary Work Abroad and be active participants in staff’s research projects, both in the UK and abroad.

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.

Assessment method

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.
