Requirements and Courses

In addition to a variety of core courses in Medieval Studies, many courses for this program are drawn from the departments of Anthropology and Archeology, Classics, English, Folklore, French and Spanish, History, Religious Studies, and Womens' Studies.

This provides a breadth of study into the culture, thought, religions, writings, languages, history and societies of the Middle Ages.

Those pursuing a Major in Medieval Studies must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours in specified courses. Those pursuing a minor program will complete 24 credit hours in these courses.

These include at least two courses in Latin, because at least a rudimentary grasp of Latin is essential to the medievalist.

Full regulations and details and course descriptions are available in the University Calendar.
