Medieval and Early Modern Studies Minor

Effective Fall 2011


Students wishing to pursue a minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the Program’s designated advisor. Appointments are scheduled at the Program Office.




Minimum Credits: 15

15 credit hours (and five courses), including at least two upper-division courses, in the medieval and early modern periods, chosen in consultation with the MEMS department advisor. These courses must include

  1. Geographic area courses. Select one course from two of these five areas:
    1. African cultures
    2. American cultures
    3. Asian cultures
    4. European cultures
    5. Middle Eastern cultures
  2. Disciplinary courses. Select one course from three of these four disciplines:
    1. historical studies
    2. art historical or archaeological studies
    3. language or literary studies
    4. musicological studies

A single course may count toward both geographic and disciplinary distribution requirements. With the approval of the department advisor, students whose major includes a medieval and early modern studies course in one of these disciplinary categories may substitute one course from a discipline different from that of the major.
