The Medieval Studies Program offers two undergraduate minors: the Medieval Studies Minor and the Viking Studies Minor. Coursework for both minors is inherently interdisciplinary – history, literature, language, art, archaeology, religion, music, and law are all within their scope. The Program sponsors a full slate of lectures, museum and library events, and conferences every year, which undergraduates are welcome to attend. Those enrolled in either minor are considered members of the Medieval Studies program and are invited to participate in our events and activities. Additionally, the Program has a lively undergraduate association, Quodlibet, that provides a student-run series of additional events, activities, and lectures. Cornell’s Medieval Studies Program cultivates a strong and supportive community of students, faculty, and staff. Those completing a minor will receive a notification on their transcripts and a certificate signed by the Director.
