Medieval and Renaissance Studies

The Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MRST) Program is administered by the Humanities Program. Undergraduate students are encouraged to pursue an interdisciplinary minor exploring all aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This minor is especially beneficial as a complement to such major fields of study as Classics, English, World Languages and Literatures, History, Philosophy, Music, Art and Architecture. The MRST program also encourages interdepartmental exchanges among graduate students and faculty.
