Laurier is the only university in Ontario to offer multiple interdisciplinary Medieval and Medievalism Studies courses 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 study of the medieval period and its cultural legacy to a literary, cultural or historical focus.
