Program Supervisor: Dr. S. McGrath, Department of Philosophy

A multi-disciplinary program in Medieval Studies is offered for students 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.

Medieval Studies course descriptions are found at the end of the Faculty of Arts section under Course Descriptions, Medieval Studies.
