Yale’s Program in Medieval Studies is an autonomous interdisciplinary enterprise, with faculty drawn from many relevant humanities departments - Classics, Comparative Literature, East Asian Languages and Literatures, English, French, German, History, History of Art, Italian, Music, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Slavic Languages and Literatures, and Spanish and Portuguese - along with the Divinity School, the Beinecke Library, and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. There are some forty faculty members at Yale who work on the various cultures of the Middle Ages. Together we form one of the largest assemblies of specialized medievalists in any university of the United States. Students have access to all of these faculty and to the courses, both graduate and undergraduate, that they offer each term. Read more
