|Description:||A broad array of courses awaits you in Medieval Studies: explore scholastic philosophy, the farce in France and the origins of modern drama.

Discover how religion, technology, literature, politics and warfare shaped history, and influenced our modern-day world. This unique program will fully immerse you in the rich and clashing mosaic of cultures and individuals that is the Middle Ages.
You can complete this program as a 4-year Honours Bachelor degree with a Double Major or a 3-year Bachelor degree. Registration in the honours degree usually begins in the second year, but admission may be gained in the third or fourth year provided you meet requirements.
