The 18-hour minor in Medieval Studies allows students to pursue their interest in the Middle Ages by taking courses in a combination of academic disciplines, including history, English, foreign languages, and philosophy. A student may earn no more than 3 hours credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he/she is taking a major. No course may be taken for both major and minor credit.
Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
