New Interdisciplinary Minor in Medieval Studies Fall 2010
A new interdisciplinary minor in Medieval Studies is available this fall. It is a course of study that covers the period from 476 to 1517. Students are encouraged to take courses from a wide range of disciplines, which makes this minor well-suited to many majors. The “Middle Ages” includes a wide variety of cultures, artistic trends, literatures, languages, philosophies, and religious practices. In developing a deeper appreciation for the past, students better understand the foundation of our fast-paced, ever-changing present day world.
The minor consists of 18 semester hours, including HIS 354 or ENGL 375 or MLLL 375. Students must complete 15 hours at the 300-level or above from an approved list of courses available in the Fall 2010 printed or online catalog. The courses are from art history, English, French, German, history, philosophy, religion, and Spanish. The 18 semester hours must be taken in at least three different areas (e.g. ENGL, SPAN, GERM), with 15 hours in an area different than the student’s major. The same course may not satisfy requirements for both the major and the minor.
