Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Academics: Medieval and Early Modern Studies

A minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies furthers our liberal arts mission of shaping students to be informed, active citizens of the world. This interdisciplinary, multi-period minor cultivates students’ deeper understanding of the past, dispelling old myths as they examine the rich diversity of cultures in Europe, northern Africa, Asia, and Latin America from the fifth century to the eighteenth. Given the profound interconnectedness of multiple modes of artistic production and cultural expression across the medieval and early modern worlds, this minor offers a valuable opportunity to further contextualize their studies in majors such as Art History, English, French Studies, German Studies, Hispanic Studies, History, Humanities, Music, Philosophy and Religion, and Theatre.
