Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Castles and cathedrals. Chaucer and Shakespeare. Tales of Troy. Medieval and renaissance studies reflect on history and culture from the Fall of Rome through the late 17th century—a time period with many defining moments for Western civilizations. Wheaton’s medieval and renaissance studies minor spans the disciplines: You will learn about societies in this era through art, music, literature, world cultures, politics, religion, and anthropology. Italian studies, English, or art history majors will especially benefit from this minor.
