Medieval Studies Concentration, BA (Interdisciplinary Major)


Laura L. Howes, English, Chair

A concentration in medieval studies focuses upon culture and society from the collapse of the Roman Empire to the 16th century. Such a concentration offers the opportunity to deepen one’s self-awareness and broaden one’s view of the range of human possibilities by studying a very different and remote culture, its conditions of life, social and political institutions, values and ideals, and modes of perception and expression.

Latin is the most appropriate language for students in the medieval studies concentration and is essential for those who plan to continue their studies in graduate school. In addition, students planning to go on to graduate school are strongly advised to supplement their medieval studies concentration with extensive work in one of the traditional disciplines.
