Oxford Medieval Studies
Oxford Medieval Studies is one of the largest forums in the world for interdisciplinary research on the Middle Ages, bringing together over 200 academics and a large body of graduate students. The period of a thousand years from c.500 to c.1500 saw huge social change, political upheaval, technological revolution, intellectual debate, and artistic innovation across Europe and the wider world. In Oxford, medieval studies link disciplines such as Archaeology; Art History; Byzantine Studies; Classics; English; History; European, Middle- and Far-Eastern languages; Music; Philosophy; Theology and Religion; and work with heritage sites and institutions such as the Ashmolean Museum and the Bodleian Library. It also offers an interdisciplinary Master’s degree in Medieval Studies.
