FACULTY OF ARTS

MEDIEVAL STUDIES PROGRAMS AND REGULATIONS

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

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

The objective of the program 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.

REGULATIONS: MAJORS

Students majoring in Medieval Studies shall discuss their program with the Program Supervisor or delegate.

Students electing Medieval Studies as their second Major shall complete a minimum of 36 credit hours in courses which shall include the following:
