Overview of Programs and Procedures

The Faculty of Arts offers a Minor Field of specialization in Medieval, Renaissance and Reformation Studies. Students intending to pursue this Minor are encouraged to consult with the Program Director for advice on selecting courses appropriate to the Minor and to their interest and background.

This Minor is designed to provide a multi-disciplinary knowledge of the history, culture and thought of two key periods in the development of the Western European world. At the same time, it allows for specialization in areas of interest such as medieval art and literature, medieval and early modern France, the growth of European empires, or medieval and early modern performance cultures.

The Minor is intended to complement Major programs in related fields, such as History, English and Religious Studies. The Minor is desirable for students contemplating graduate-level work in related fields.
