The Certificate Program in Medieval Studies offers courses and seminars for students interested in Art History,  Comparative LiteratureEnglishFrench, Latin American, Iberian, and Latino CulturesHistoryMusicPhilosophyPolitical Science, or Theatre. Students who complete the interdisciplinary concentration receive a certificate in Medieval Studies.

The program enables students interested in medieval studies to broaden their knowledge of medieval culture and to pursue their interests in a more comprehensive context than that afforded by specialization in a single field. Since it emphasizes interdisciplinary research, the Medieval Studies program also encourages students to follow a pattern of studies that reflects the interdisciplinary conditions in which the works of the Middle Ages were created.

Resources for Research and Training

In addition to The Graduate Center’s Mina Rees Library, the student engaged in medieval studies enjoys the resources of over sixty libraries, museums, and collections in the Greater New York area that have special medieval materials. Among these are the New York Public Library, the Pierpont Morgan Library, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (including the Cloisters), the American Numismatic Society, the Grolier Club of New York, the Jewish Theological Seminary, and the General Theological Seminary. A student association, The Medieval Study, provides opportunities for the presentation of papers and for mutual exchange among students in the various disciplines. The program also sponsors a series of colloquia.
