Questions about the Medieval Studies undergraduate program?
MI 20001 can fulfill EITHER your University History OR your University Literature requirement (unless you are in Medieval Studies and counting the course toward your major/minor requirements in the program).
A Medieval Studies undergraduate degree is excellent preparation for graduate study, whether in a Medieval Studies graduate program or in a standard departmental field. You may wish to strengthen your background with additional non-medieval course work in the department in which you will pursue graduate study. (For example, a Medieval Studies major who wants to go to graduate school in English might wish to take courses in literary theory or modern poetry.)
No, you can minor in Medieval Studies regardless of your College or School affiliation.
Students who are interested in being part of a student club for medievalists can contact the Mediaeval Society of Our Lady of the Lake. The purpose of this society is to promote an interest and awareness of mediaeval civilization with an academic basis to its members. If you would like more information about this club, please e-mail medeva.
Yes, start by exploring the options available through the College of Arts and Letters. Check with CUSE (Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement) for details. In addition, funds are sometimes available for undergraduate research through the Medieval Institute. Contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies Linda Major if you are interested in making a proposal.
If you are working on a project for a medieval studies course that requires use of the reference materials in the MI Reading Room, you can request after-hours access from the Library Reference Specialist. If you wish to use Reading Room materials between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, no special permission is required.
You may enter a paper written for a Medieval Studies class in the Michel Prize competition, or you may wish to participate in the yearly Undergraduate Colloquium. For more information, contact Linda Major, Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Yes, all majors, honors majors, supplementary majors, and minors may participate in the MI graduation ceremony.
