MEDIEVAL STUDIES

EXPLORE THE BROAD HORIZONS OF MEDIEVAL EUROPE

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.

Skills You will Gain

1. Linguistics – In this minor, you’ll be required to achieve a basic proficiency and understanding of Latin to be able to read and comprehend unsimplified texts from patristic and medieval accounts. Students will also be expected to gain mastery of their own language to clearly and concisely communicate their ideas.

2. Critical thinking – The philosophical aspects of this program will teach you to think critically, organize your thoughts, and express them clearly and confidently. This, in turn, will allow you to listen, properly understand and deconstruct complex concepts into simple ones.

3. Historical perspective – It’s an indispensable tool in the study of history. You’ll develop the ability to read a source document or historical account with a critical eye and understand it in light of surrounding events, causes and consequences. That means you’ll appreciate history, not just as a collection of past events, but as a running account of human experience.
