Medieval Studies analyzes cultural materials from the European era c. AD 500-1500. These materials include myths, philosophy, theology, combat, fine arts, literature, history, politics, music, economics and architecture, among others.
Laurier is the only university in Ontario that offers interdisciplinary Medieval Studies to first-year students. You’ll have access to courses that cover an exciting variety of subjects like witches, outlaws, heretics, knights, dragons and fantasy literature. We bring later representations of the Middle Ages – in movies, video games and theme parks, for instance – directly into our course content, right from year one. Our program allows you to tailor your medieval study to a literary, cultural or historical focus.
