Graduate Certificate in Medieval and Early Modern Studies

The graduate certificate in Medieval and Early Modern Studies (ca. 500-1700) offers valuable training to students who specialize in Medieval, Early Modern, or Medieval & Early Modern fields.  The program integrates important methodologies (in archival research, book history, digital humanities, for example) and a broad spectrum of specialized content. The aim is to enrich the interdisciplinary training of graduate students and foster an intellectual community of students and faculty supporting education and research. We offer a variety of courses from which students tailor electives to best enhance their degree program.  This can be especially valuable for doctoral students as humanities faculty positions in early periods ask increasingly for competence across fields, especially in contingent periods.
