Graduate Minor in Medieval Studies

The graduate minor in Medieval Studies offers graduate students in the humanities an interdisciplinary field of study in an important era in European development. The minor provides students with a broader historical and cultural background for their major discipline. Graduate status is required for admission to the minor.

The graduate minor in Medieval Studies requires 9 credits of coursework (of which 3 credits are at the 500 level) for a master’s candidate and 15 credits of coursework (of which 6 credits are at the 500 level) for a doctoral candidate; the courses will be selected in consultation with an adviser for the minor, who will normally be a member of the Liberal Arts Medieval Studies Committee; and with the chair of the student’s graduate committee. The courses for the minor will be chosen from at least two of the following areas outside the students’ area of specialization: arts; history; literature and language; medieval studies; philosophy and religious studies; and other areas as available. The sequence of the courses will be determined by the student’s major department.
