"The Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program encourages the interdisciplinary study of Europe between 300 CE and 1700 CE. Capturing the values, practices, and contexts of subjects in these centuries is challenging, not least because of their distance from us. Medieval and Renaissance Studies thus advocates the serious investigation of history, languages, religion, and culture in an effort to narrow what Francesco Petrarca (d. 1374) called “the gap of time.” The aim is to amplify our comprehension of the women and men who lived in these pivotal epochs.

"Undergraduates majoring and minoring in Med-Ren have the opportunity to construct their curriculum from an array of academic disciplines: Art History, Classical Studies, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. Our majors and minors balance breadth with depth by having a number of their academic credits come from more advanced courses."[1]
