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.
