Medieval and Renaissance Studies: Self-Designed Major, Self-Designed Minor
Explore the rich confluence of cultures in Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East from the fourth to the 17th centuries, and study the writers, artists, and public figures who fashioned the modern world.
The program allows you to design an interdisciplinary major or minor in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, drawing on collegewide offerings in three or more fields. As an era when rival religions competed for minds and hearts, states took form, and writers and artists developed vernacular idioms, this period offers a model for contemporary study of the interaction of cultures. Program faculty will advise you on the connections to be made across disciplines and time periods and assist you in building coherent curricula around your individual interests.
