Medieval–Renaissance Studies


The minor in Medieval-Renaissance Studies is designed to give students the opportunity to explore the history, literature, art, culture, and language of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, or Early Modern, periods, from the sixth to the mid-seventeenth century.

Based on the premise that knowledge of the past prepares us for the future, the minor is particularly suited for students majoring in History and/or English with an interest in these periods and planning to pursue graduate work; it may also be of interest to students majoring in the arts or in one of the foreign languages. The minor encourages interdisciplinary approaches. The prospective minor will work out a coherent academic curriculum after consultation with the Medieval-Renaissance Studies coordinator.
