Medieval Studies Minor

For information, contact Professor Anna Klosowska, Department of French and Italian, 228 Irvin Hall, 513-529-7453,

This minor provides a basis for understanding and evaluating Western civilization by showing its roots in the Middle Ages. It establishes a full cultural context so students can understand and appreciate medieval literature, history, art, religion, and philosophy.

The Medieval Studies minor is open to all students, but will probably be of most interest to majors in art history, classics, English, French and Italian, German, history, philosophy, religion, and Spanish.
