About the Program

Medieval Studies (MDST)

The minor in Medieval studies (MDST) offers students the opportunity to acquire an understanding of the historical, cultural, and social forces that shaped western civilization during the Middle Ages. Students can choose from an interdisciplinary variety of existing courses and will be encouraged to consult with members of the Medieval Studies Advisory Committee on opportunities for studying medieval culture in situ.We also sponsor classes and cultural events, such as lectures, workshops, and opportunities to hit people with padded swords, so that students can engage actively with the many facets of medieval culture. (For more pictures from the medieval armor event, see our Facebook page.)

This minor will be especially useful for students of those fields that touch on the study of the Middle Ages, such as:


In addition, this minor may be a useful preparation for those students considering graduate school in any of these fields.
