The interdisciplinary minor in medieval studies aims to inspire you to both appreciate and to examine critically the medieval roots of modern culture. This minor may be taken in conjunction with any major, but it will be especially useful for students of those fields that touch on the study of the Middle Ages, such as
- art history
- modern languages: Spanish, French, German, Dutch
In addition, the medieval studies minor may be useful preparation if you are considering graduate school in any of these fields.
The group minor in medieval studies is administered by an interdepartmental committee. Members of the committee are Frans van Liere (history), Karen Saupe (English), Henry Luttikhuizen (art), Tim Steele (music), and Mark Williams (classics). If you are interested, consult a member of the medieval studies minor committee for advising on course selections.
Courses in the program also often include field trips and other ways to learn about and experience the Middle Ages with all of your senses.
