Study Across Disciplines

As a medieval studies minor, you can better understand the world today by exploring the ways it has developed from its medieval roots. This minor benefits a wide variety of majors such as anthropology, art, classics, English and linguistics, foreign languages, history, and philosophy and religion, among others.

Forge your own path through a variety of classes in language, literature, philosophy and religion, history and the fine arts to pursue your personal passions in this fascinating and important period of history.

You can choose to study the persecution of heretics; the Great Schism in the medieval church and the Reformation; disease and medical science; technology and cosmology; along with questions about the social roles of men and women and the use of power and war.
