Classical, Medieval & Renaissance Studies (CMRS)

Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with a broadly grounded understanding of the evolution and transformation of western civilization between roughly 700 BCE and 1600 CE. It features a combination of required courses (survey, language, and periods) and elective fields (History & Archaeology; Literature, Fine Arts & Language; History of Ideas & Classical Tradition). Students interested in these Four-Year, Honours, and Minor programs should see the separate entry under Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
