Welcome to the home of the Medieval Studies Program at Sewanee: The University of the South.

Medieval Studies is an interdisciplinary major and minor, combining courses in languages, literature, philosophy, history, and art.  Students learn about the variety and complexity of the Middle Ages, and complete their senior year by working closely with faculty members on a focused research project.

Our students have been very successful in moving into graduate programs - recent graduates are currently pursuing or have pursued advanced degrees at Yale, the University of Louisville, and Western Michigan University. 

Our students can also choose to spend a semester studying at the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Oxford, where they can work closely with some of the greatest medievalists in the world while fulfilling their Medieval Studies major or minor. 

Students are also encouraged to become involved with the Sewanee Medieval Colloquium, an annual meeting of medievalists from around the world, now in its 44th year. Look here for information on the Colloquium.
