The Medieval Studies major explores the legacy of the Middle Ages, a period central to our understanding of both the past and the present. Through interdisciplinary study of medieval art, history, language, literature, music and ways of though and religion, students develop an integrated understanding of medieval civilization.

Ten courses: one required course, five distribution requirements, and four electives:

  • HS 1300: Introduction to Medieval History
