Why We're Different
Our majors take the majority of their course credits in 300- and 400-level classes.
Majors complete significant training in a modern European language, Arabic, Hebrew, Latin, or Greek.
The academic rigor and linguistic requirements of the program help to prepare students for global careers in many fields.
Our Medieval & Renaissance Studies students investigate the histories, languages, religions, and cultures of diverse societies to broaden their intellectual horizons and obtain critical understanding of the intricate complexities and exchanges between the past and the present.
Course topics come from an array of academic disciplines: Art History, Classical Studies, English, Government, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. See the Undergraduate Catalog to explore the complete list of Medieval & Renaissance Studies courses.
Research opportunities for undergraduates exist in course papers, independent study projects, Honors theses, and study abroad. The annual undergraduate research symposium highlights excellent work done by undergraduates.
Our majors have taken their interdisciplinary degrees into successful graduate programs and professional careers, including secondary school and university research and teaching, fundraising, publishing, social work, and counseling, politics, journalism, as well as law and medical school.
