Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Minor

Interdisciplinary
Susanna Fein and Isolde Thyrêt, Coordinators
113 G Satterfield and 305 Bowman

The program in ancient, medieval and Renaissance studies offers a culturally comparative minor in which the distance of time lends profound diversity from present experience. The program allows students to explore the origins and development of Western culture as defined across continents, religions and civilizations, through a range of disciplines (anthropology, architecture, art, fashion, history, language, literature, music, philosophy and theatre). The program’s flexibility encourages students to pursue specific interests, for example, early religion, high medieval culture, classical influences upon the Renaissance or Byzantine culture.

Students earning a minor in AMRS take a total of 21 semester hours—6 lower-division credit hours and 15-16 upper-division credit hours—in at least three disciplines. No more than 6 credit hours counted toward the major may also be counted toward the minor. There is no specific language requirement, but students are encouraged to select a language that could be used to satisfy the Kent Core Requirements and also to support their AMRS minor coursework. In selecting courses for the minor, students are responsible for meeting the prerequisites set by individual disciplines.
