FACULTY OF ARTS

MEDIEVAL STUDIES PROGRAMMES AND REGULATIONS

Programme Supervisor: Dr. W. Schipper, Department of English

A multi-disciplinary programme in Medieval Studies is offered for candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts; it may be taken only as a second Major programme in conjunction with a disciplinary Major, or as a Minor programme.

The objective of the programme is the integrated study through core courses of a historical and cultural period, the Middle Ages, here defined as the period between Antiquity and the Modern Age. Such an approach, coordinating the methods and subjects of several disciplines, mirrors the pluralistic and interreligious framework of the age and provides context for the study of a student's first Major.
