Cluster: Medieval Studies

This cluster is made up of courses that, taken together, present to students a broad, interdisciplinary view of medieval Europe, approximately the period from 400 or 1500 AD. The cluster strives to distinguish the medieval cultural system(s) from those that proceeded and those that came after it.

Sophomore Inquiry: Medieval Studies

(UNST 245)

The Medieval Studies Sophomore Inquiry courses introduce students to medieval life, thought, and culture in Europe and the Mediterranean Basin, from roughly 800 to 1450 C.E. All Medieval Studies Inquiry courses are interdisciplinary in their approach, and emphasize appreciation for the uniqueness of medieval culture through the analysis of literary and historical narratives, images and material life, mythologies and allegory, and religious life. Exact content will vary according to course.
