The University of Wisconsin has a committed community of faculty and graduate students undertaking scholarly research in medieval fields. We gather regularly to discuss our own work as well as to host visiting lectures and conferences. The Program in Medieval Studies draws faculty from many departments and programs: African Languages, Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, English, Folklore, French and Italian, German, History, History of Science, Languages and Cultures of Asia, Linguistics, Medical History, Music, Religious Studies, Scandinavian Studies, Spanish and Portuguese, and Women’s Studies.

The Medieval Studies Program is not a degree-granting department; those wishing to pursue a MA or PhD degree in a medieval topic are encouraged to apply directly to the most relevant department.

Graduate students at the University of Wisconsin have many opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. They can also acquire solid training in a variety of philological and linguistic skills as well as theoretical approaches necessary for work within the field.

Moreover, the Program in Medieval Studies supports the research needs of its graduate students in a variety of ways. More information about support and resources can be found on the Resources section of this site. Consider joining The Graduate Association for Medieval Studies!
