Discovery modules

As an undergraduate student, you'll benefit from Medieval Studies discovery modules, which allow you to gain an insight into studying Medieval Studies and to build a foundational knowledge in this interdisciplinary subject area. You can build Medieval Studies modules into almost any Leeds undergraduate degree in each year of study.

You may want to choose modules that complement your degree, or perhaps take the opportunity to explore a new subject area.

Many students have found Medieval Studies discovery modules a useful and engaging way in which to build up expertise in the area with a view to progressing onto postgraduate Medieval Studies courses, here at Leeds and elsewhere. 

The medieval discovery modules can be found on the Leeds for Life website under the subject 'Medieval Studies'. Our modules can also be found under the themes of Power and Conflict, Ethics, Religion and Law, and History and Society.
