Medieval and Renaissance Studies certificate

The medieval and Renaissance studies certificate is an undergraduate academic certificate that enables students to acquire proficiency in European medieval and Renaissance cultures and societies, as well as comparable cultural developments in non-western countries. The required course work in medieval and Renaissance studies promotes both inter- and trans-disciplinary work, which in turn provides the tools necessary for nuanced examination of not only a distant society but also, in its reflection, of our own.

The medieval and Renaissance studies certificate is open to all majors. It is administered by the Department of English in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Students are strongly encouraged to achieve proficiency in a foreign language important to medieval and/or Renaissance Europe through course work or examination.
