The Master of Arts in Hospitaller Studies is offered at both the University of Malta and the University of Malta – Gozo Campus.
The programme’s main aim is to study the history of the Hospitaller Order of St John. Through the Order’s charitable and military activities the Hospitaller fulfilled a “great civilising and defensive function... in the development of Europe”. Another significant role was the Order’s great social and economic role. The intelligent administration of the Order’s massive estates constituted an unwittingly formative influence, a powerful force of continuity, and a constructive force in European civilisation. The course intends to study all these major phases of the Order as it gradually evolved within the wider framework of the historical development of Europe and the Mediterranean.
The Course shall be open to applicants in possession of a first cycle degree obtained with at least Second Class Honours or Category II.
Applicants may be required to sit for an interview before being accepted for the Course to establish whether they have sufficient proficiency in one of the following languages to be able to profit from the Course: French, Italian, Spanish, or German.
The admission requirements are applicable for courses commencing in October 2020.
