About Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Medieval and Renaissance Studies will amplify your liberal arts education by focusing on an especially rich and diverse period of cultural history. A strong complement to an English or History major, this interdisciplinary minor supplies you with a deep understanding of the differences and continuities between the two eras, as well as their influence on the world today.

"The minor was about learning the birth and evolution of the written English language. It was fascinating to see the linguistic shifts as well as the differing world views and characteristics of those two periods."

 - Courtney Spence, '15

"I always loved fantasy growing up, and the Medieval and Renaissance periods are where most of that comes from. Discovering the reality behind our modern fantasy made it wonderful."

 - Angela Nienaber, '15
