Medieval Studies


Students interested in an interdisciplinary approach to university education and to an examination of the Middle Ages may take either a General or an Honours BA in Medieval Studies. Such a degree is designed to provide a general awareness of our cultural heritage. In addition, the program is flexible enough to prepare students for careers in teaching, or for the pursuance of a graduate degree.

The Medieval Studies program is administered jointly by the History Department at St. Jerome's College (Dr. J.A. Wahl) and by the Department of Classical Studies (Dr. L.L. Neuru). Interested students may call or write either of these advisors for further information.
