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.

All students planning a program in Medieval Studies must meet with the Medieval Studies advisor to develop their course of study. Although the requirements of the program are flexible, students may only graduate with a major or minor in Medieval Studies if the Medieval Studies advisor approves that their academic credits fulfill the program requirements.
