Medieval and Renaissance Studies


The Medieval and Renaissance Studies Minor is for students interested in focusing on these particular historical periods and how they manifest in a variety of disciplines. Students must take 6 courses (18 credits) from the course curriculum list below. Courses must come from at least 3 departments; students may focus specifically on the Medieval or Renaissance period, or they can combine courses from both periods. Students' coursework may focus on Western Europe or take a broader view of Medieval and Renaissance geography to include the Middle East, the Far East, and even the Americas. Courses may "double count" with a student's major or additional minor. Other special topics courses may be approved for the minor by the coordinator.

Coordinator: Angela Weisl, English
