Alumni Spotlight

Each fall and spring we present a new Alumni Spotlight featuring the career paths of Institute alumni. Our Fall '22 Spotlight features Alex Miller (B.A./B.S. '92). We asked him to share with us his journey from Institute graduate to Principal for Global Head of Strategy and Principal Strategy Lead in the U.S. for KPMG, LLP, one of the largest accounting firms in the world. His story reminds us that medieval studies instills students with the skills and values to thrive outside of academia, and we are excited to share it with you today!

Apply to our Ph.D. Program

The Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame is one of the leading centers in the United States for the advanced study of medieval culture. The graduate program provides students with superb technical training, but it also equips them with a holistic vision of the Middle Ages, grounded in a mastery of sources and languages and extending to the whole of its life and culture.

Now Accepting Applications for Mellon and Public Humanities Fellowships

This year the Medieval Institute is offering two external fellowships supporting research in Medieval Studies. The Mellon Fellowship allows a junior faculty member to spend a year at Notre Dame working on their own research, while the Public Humanities Postdoctoral Fellowship enables a fellow to work with the Institute on outreach and engagement efforts as well as conduct research and/or teaching of their own. Applications are due February 1st.
