Undergraduate certificate: medieval studies


Medieval studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to offer students an introduction to the history and culture of the Middle Ages and to provide them with the tools necessary to pursue a more advanced study in a number of disciplines, including languages and literatures, philosophy, history, and art history. The study of medieval society provides a window to those centuries that span the end of the ancient world and the beginning of the modern era. The Middle Ages saw fascinating global developments in such areas as law, religion, philosophy, language, art, music, and literature.

The Medieval Studies Program offers an undergraduate certificate and a selection of courses open to students in all majors.
