The period known as the European Middle Ages has endowed the Western world with a rich architectural, musical, poetic, theological, literary and linguistic heritage. Our vision of the world has its origins in the Long Medieval period, so studying this era that starts at the end of Antiquity and reaches the Modern times introduces you to your past in all its dimensions: linguistic, cultural, historical, political, philosophical and religious. These multidisciplinary programs include courses in history, philosophy, music, theatre, English, French, Italian, and Latin literatures.

This program is offered in English and in French.

The table below includes only discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on including a minor to your degree.

French immersion is available when taken as part of an honours degree.

Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2015-2016 calendars for the previous requirements.
