The Medieval Studies major is not available to students commencing in 2013 or later.
Students who commenced their degree prior to 2013 are admitted to the major if they have successfully completed units of study to the value of at least 18 Junior credit points spanning two subject areas from the Faculty of Arts units (Table A) – see the Arts and Social Sciences (Undergraduate) Handbook.
Students who commenced their degree prior to 2013 may complete a major in Medieval Studies by satisfying the minimum requirement of 36 senior credit points from units of study listed in this subject area, or from Cross-Listed Units of Study, including at least 12 senior credit points of core units.
In 2013 the core units on offer are:
MDST2613 Sex and Sin in the Middle Ages (Semester 1)
MDST2612 Byzantium between East and West (Semester 2)
It is strongly recommended that continuing students considering a Medieval Studies major and who have satisfied the appropriate prerequisites complete these core units of study in 2013.
For admission to Medieval Studies IV Honours, students must complete a Major in Medieval Studies (= 36 Senior credit points) plus further Units worth 12 credit points from the Cross-Listed Units of Study. That is, Units worth at least 48 Senior credit points must be completed.
