Programs

The Centre for Medieval Studies offers two graduate programs, leading to the degrees of Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Medieval Studies. Students can additionally choose to enrol in a Collaborative Program.

The education of aspiring medievalists requires both training in basic skills and tools and the fostering of certain qualities of mind and imagination. CMS students will acquire:

  • expertise in “reading” the materials remaining from the medieval past.
  • language skills and the sensitivity to language essential for access to medieval cultures and societies.
  • the mastery of both disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity. expertise in grasping cultural differences and predispositions, and developing a sensitivity to the distinct cultural worlds that competed or blended in the making of early Europe.
