The staff of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program is composed of faculty members from the departments of Classics, Archaeology, and Religion, English, History, Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Philosophy, and Visual Studies. A doctoral candidate in one of these departments offering a PhD may elect a minor concentration in interdisciplinary medieval or renaissance studies by taking at least three appropriate courses (9 hours) outside the department. Thus one earns, for example, a PhD in art history and archaeology with specialization in medieval studies, or a PhD in history with specialization in renaissance studies. Under certain circumstances, a minor in medieval or renaissance studies also may be arranged for MA programs.
For more information on the minor, contact the current chair of Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Emma Lipton, English Department.
