Medieval & Renaissance Studies

Getting Started

Medieval & Renaissance Studies include a wide range of interdisciplinary topics. The definition of Medieval & Renaissance Studies in the context of this guide is aligned with how the academic department at Barnard approaches it:

The Medieval and Renaissance program at Barnard College is designed to enable students to acquire both a broad knowledge of the European Middle Ages and/or Renaissance and a richer and more detailed understanding in one area of concentration chosen by the student.

Additional Research Guides

Since the Medieval & Renaissance program at Barnard includes concentrations in certain disciplines, looking at guides within art history, history, literature, philosophy, romance languages and cultures, music, or religion can also be helpful.
