A major aim of the AHRB Centre for Byzantine Cultural History is to provide a suite of training MAs designed to produce textual scholars capable of handling visual and material evidence, archaeologists and art historians capable of using texts, together with an enhanced basic interdisciplinary diploma and MA designed to produce all-round Byzantinists.

 

info MA in Byzantine Art and Text
This MA programme is a full-time one-year MA for those with an interest in Byzantine art and literature and who want to do more. While it is a free-standing qualification, it also provides preparation for advanced research in the field of Byzantine Studies. It is unusual in the postgraduate structure as it requires that the first semester be taken at the Institute of Byzantine Studies at Queen's University Belfast and the second term at the University of Sussex.

infoMA in Byzantine Studies and Modern Greek (QUB)

The MA in Byzantine Studies and Modern Greek is designed to a) bring students who may have studied only one aspect of Byzantium in their undergraduate course to a more rounded and interdisciplinary understanding of Byzantium, b) to allow Byzantinists to further their own overall understanding of the subject while gaining some knowledge of Modern Greek and c) to allow students wishing to specialise in Modern Greek to gain the necessary training.

 

infoMLitt Byzantine Archaeology (Newcastle)

The MLitt in Byzantine Archaeology at Newcastle can be 'tailor-made' to suit the individual requirements of students considering future research in Byzantine Studies or for gaining key skills that will be useful for the non-academic workplace. It is normally taken by students as a preliminary training year before undertaking a PhD. The Masters programme can involve modern or ancient language training as well as training by research in areas of archaeology that will be needed for PhD. Topics in archaeology that have been undertaken by students in the past include Research Essays in Byzantine Ecclesiastical Architecture; Byzantine Ceramics; Saints' Lives and Archaeology; Byzantine Sculptural decoration; Byzantine villages; Urban Water Supply; Field survey methodologies; Pilgrimage archaeology
