Medieval and Early Modern Studies

The Medieval and Early Modern Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary major and minor that covers the fourth through the seventeenth centuries. The program draws on the expertise of faculty members from multiple departments within the School of Liberal Arts (Art History, Asian Studies, Classical Studies, English, French and Italian, Germanic and Slavic Studies, History, Jewish Studies, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, and Spanish and Portuguese) and encourages students to choose their course of study according to their own interests. Majors take three courses each from two of the three following categories:  medieval (300-1499), early modern (1500-1799), and crossover (spanning medieval and early modern) plus four additional courses listed in the program.  Minors take six courses, with at least two from each of the three categories.
