The purpose of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program is to give students a broad, multidisciplinary training in the history and culture of Europe from late antiquity to the early modern period. Both as an Interdisciplinary Studies major with a faculty-initiated concentration in Medieval and Renaissance Studies and a minor, the program offers a wide range of courses and serves as a guide for anyone with a special interest in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The major program is especially recommended as a second major for anyone considering going on to graduate study in some aspect of medieval and early modern studies.
