Fast Facts: Medieval & Renaissance Studies

Employers frequently look for people who can analyze and synthesize data from multiple sources and communicate their findings clearly. The minor in Medieval and Renaissance Studies fosters multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to questions and data and provides opportunities to learn and practice effective communication skills. Students completing the minor have gone on to careers in business, computer information systems, education, forensics, the government, healthcare, law and clinical veterinary science. Several students have also continued these studies in graduate school and now work in higher education.
"I enjoyed this minor because it was interdisciplinary. The wide range of classes made it suitable for anyone who loves history, literature, languages and learning. I learned Latin, became familiar with manuscripts, paleography and literature from the Middle Ages and Renaissance — all of which has helped in my graduate work."
