About

The Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program at the College of William & Mary encourages the interdisciplinary study of Europe between 300 CE and 1700 CE.  Capturing the values, practices, and contexts of subjects in these centuries is challenging, not least because of their distance from us. 

Overview

Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the College of William & Mary advocates the serious investigation of history, languages, religion, and culture in an effort to narrow what Francesco Petrarca (d. 1374) called “the gap of time.”  The aim is to amplify our comprehension of the women and men who lived in these pivotal epochs.

Key Features 

  • Undergraduates majoring and minoring in Med-Ren have the opportunity to construct their curriculum from an array of academic disciplines:  Art History, Classical Studies, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. 
  • Our majors and minors balance breadth with depth by having a number of their academic credits come from more advanced courses.

Programme Structure

  • In keeping with the academic goals of the College, Medieval and Renaissance Studies faculty encourage students to pursue research in seminars and lecture classes, and through independent study and honors theses.  
  • Students may pursue a variety of research topics through the departments that contribute to the Med-Ren program, such as Art History, Classical Studies, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy, and Religious Studies.  
  • It is important to note that the ability to read a foreign language and some advanced course work in the relevant discipline frequently are crucial to the success of a project.
