Minor: Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Return to Majors and Minors Return to: Majors and Minors

The Medieval and Renaissance Studies curriculum opens to students the diverse cultures of Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa that thrived within the period from the third century through the seventeenth. It incorporates offerings from the departments of English, History, Modern Languages and Classics, and Art to explore issues of social structure, philosophy, religion, politics, language, poetry, prose, and artistic expression from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Students who elect this curriculum usually begin their exploration of the period through introductory courses, such as ARH 155, HON 111, HTY 105, or HTY 202, only one of which counts towards the total credits of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to take courses from all of its disciplines.
