About Ancient and Medieval History, BA - at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Key Features

This degree offers a wide range of subjects from myth to knighthood and from Homeric Greece to the end of the medieval period. It trains you to use a variety of source materials from both periods, with opportunities to learn how to use both ancient inscriptions and medieval manuscripts.

The first year aims to provide the necessary basis of knowledge on the history of the ancient and medieval worlds and an introduction to ancient and medieval societies and cultures. In the second and third years, you will have the opportunity to widen your studies into a variety of different areas of interest from the Homeric world to the Cistercians, and specialise in areas of your choice. Options are also available to study selected modules in the wider Faculty of Humanities, for example in Egyptology and medieval Literature.

The culmination of the degree, and a module in which these specialisms can especially be combined, is the dissertation, where you are free to pursue a topic of your choice in line with our range of research and publication specialisms. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in the wider research community and are always welcome at our monthly research seminar series, which feature speakers from around the world.

Based on the Lampeter campus, you will be taught by staff from the School of Classics as well as from the School of Archaeology, History and Anthropology, making sure that you always have expert support and access to the latest research in the field. The school supports the very active student-led Medieval Re-enactment and Ancient Civilisations societies.
