The goals of the Medieval Studies minor program are:
Requirements for a minor in Medieval Studies (18 credits) The Medieval Studies minor consists of six courses in at least three disciplines, although students are encouraged to take courses from as many disciplines as possible.
Required course (3 credits): HI 205 Priests, Poets, and Peasants: Medieval Thought and Culture
Five courses from the following list (15 credits). Of these, at least three courses (9 credits) must be at the 200-level or above: EL 114 British Literature: Middle Ages to Restoration EL 147 Arthurian Literature EL 211 Medieval Studies EL 212 Chaucer AR 101 Art History I: Ancient through Renaissance MU 720 Gregorian Chant HI 103 Western Civilization II: Medieval and Early Modern Europe HI 110 English History to 1485 HI 211 Sword and Siege: War in Medieval Europe HI 213 Mystics, Maids, and Monarchs: Women in Medieval Europe HI 227 “Bring Out Yer Dead!” The Middle Ages on Film HI 231 Blood and Roses: England in the Late Middle Ages HI 248 The History of the Christian Churches I: to 1500 FR 321 Survey of French Literature I GE 321 German Literature of the Middle Ages LT 321 Latin Hymns of the Roman Church PL 202 Medieval Philosophy PL 280 Thomistic Philosophy TH 320 Theology of Medieval Christianity TH 342 The Benedictine Heritage
Up to three of the six courses used for the Medieval Studies minor may also be used to satisfy core, major, or other minor requirements. For those also minoring in Education, up to four of the six courses may also be used to satisfy core, major, or other minor requirements. Since the content of HI 103 Western Civilization II was changed in Spring 2010, students who took it prior to that semester cannot count it toward the minor.
