Medieval Studies Program

Students of the Middle Ages, whatever their special area of interest, know that interdisciplinary study is no recent invention but an approach older than the modern system of organizing knowledge by "disciplines." Through a study of the Medieval period, students can come to an understanding of a civilization in both its unity and diversity. Such a study offers coherence rather than fragmentation. If a liberal education is to be developed around an understanding of the past and present
in terms of the connections among various phenomena, then medieval
studies is central to that education.
