The Medieval and Renaissance Studies minor focuses on the period from the fall of Rome (5th century C.E.) to 1700. The minor allows students to take courses in art history, English, history, music, philosophy, political science, religion, and a range of languages (Arabic, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Latin as well as medieval languages such as Old English and Middle English) in the original or in translation. Students may focus on either the medieval or the Renaissance periods or combine coursework in both Periods.
Students interested in declaring a minor in Medieval and Renaissance Studies should obtain a "Declaration of Minor" form from Registration Services in Warren Hall, and then they will need to get the signature of the minor coordinator on that form. The minor coordinator's contact information is listed below.
