Introduction

Medieval Cultures

The Master's Degree in Medieval Cultures, which is currently coordinated by the Faculty of Philology, is an inter-faculty course, involving the faculties of Philology, Philosophy, Geography and History. It is taught by medieval specialists from disciplines such as archeology, Latin, Romance languages, Semitics, philosophy, history, history of art and paleography.

The Master's Degree in Medieval Cultures trains future specialists in the Middle Ages. It provides an overview of the European area, and of the tools required to understand European identity, the historical roots that are the basis of Europe's unity, and the plurality of cultural and linguistic expression in Europe. For a comprehensive approach to the Middle Ages, the master's degree establishes strong interrelation between the different fields that focus on this historical period. This interdisciplinarity is the basis of the master's degree and of the Institute for Research on Medieval Cultures (IRCUM): a centre that is associated with the master's degree and dedicated to research, knowledge transfer and dissemination on the medieval world.

One of the main, differentiating characteristics of the master's degree is the fact that it is associated with a research centre, the Institute for Research on Medieval Cultures (IRCUM), and with the doctoral degree in Medieval Cultures. Other entities in this area are the Association of Interdisciplinary Research and Dissemination in Medieval Cultures (ARDIT), the association of third-cycle students linked to the Institute for Research on Medieval Cultures (IRCUM), and the Master's Degree in Medieval Culture at the University of Barcelona. The objectives of ARDIT are research and dissemination of the cultural legacy of the Middle Ages, from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Therefore, the Master's Degree in Medieval Cultures trains students as specialists in this period. One of its main qualities, and that which best meets demands in the current world, is that it provides essentially multi-skilled training, which combines specialisation with a cross-disciplinary approach to European civilisation.
