Medieval and Early Modern Studies
The minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies enables students to pursue a program in the historical and cultural production of Europe and the Mediterranean from the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of Islam to the mid-seventeenth century. This period comprises distinct thematic continuities understood to be post-classical and pre-Enlightenment and it is intended to be multidisciplinary.
Six courses are required:
- One must be “Classical and Scriptural Backgrounds.”
- At least three should be at the 200 level or above.
- A maximum of four courses (including “Classical and Scriptural Backgrounds”) may be taken from any one department.
- At least four of the six courses need to be in one division (either Humanities or Social Sciences).
- Two courses may overlap with a major and another minor and one course may overlap with a cluster.
The divisional identity of the minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies can be used to satisfy either a humanities or a social sciences area requirement depending on course content and number of courses taken in either division. (See 4th bullet above.)
