Ave Maria University
In this program, you will discover the stunning brilliance of the so-called ‘Dark Ages:’ an age that saw a flowering of human wisdom, the revival of forgotten treasures of the ancient world, and the birth of philosophies and institutions that became the foundations of western civilization for centuries to come.
Careers: Historian, Teacher, Lawyer, Writer, Graduate Studies
The Medieval Studies program allows you a great deal of flexibility, with over a dozen electives to supplement your study. From history and the arts to political philosophy and the theology of St. Thomas Aquinas, you have a variety of ways to immerse yourself in this fascinating period of history.
Fast Fact: In Medieval Studies, you’ll explore the simple elegance of Gregorian Chant, which was nearly lost to history.
