Undergraduate Program

The Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program seeks intellectual curiosity and rewards intellectual diligence.  In Med-Ren, students increase their knowledge of medieval and early modern Europe by studying relevant literatures, languages, history, and cultural subjects.  Research opportunities for undergraduates may be found in course papers, independent study projects, honors theses, and even study abroad, and students may present their findings at the annual Medieval and Renaissance Studies Symposium on Undergraduate Research, which occurs in late March.  Many of our Med-Ren enthusiasts double-major in one of the fields that contributes to the program.  Many Med-Ren majors and minors also go on to M.A. and Ph.D. work in one of the relevant disciplines.
