This minor offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. The program reflects the nature of knowledge during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, a period in which theologians wrote poetry, poets studied philosophy, philosophers pursued scientific truths, and scientists produced works of art. We offer a set of related courses that open up not only the medieval and Renaissance periods, but also the classical origins of those periods and the global contexts in which they took place.
