The M.A. in medieval studies is an interdisciplinary cultural studies degree program based in Dedman College and designed to encourage students to acquire not only strong disciplinary training but also broadly-based sensitivity to medieval cultures, contexts and intellectual currents. The program draws upon courses in the Western Middle Ages as well as upon Byzantine and Islamic subjects offered by other departments in Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences , the Meadows School of the Arts and the Perkins School of Theology . It is also intended to serve students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree in a medieval field, since it will enable such students to gain a broad interdisciplinary acquaintance with the Middle Ages before narrowing their work to a specialized field at the doctoral level.
