The S/U grading option is not allowed for courses counting toward this major.In addition to approved courses listed below, courses that devote at least eight weeks of the semester to medieval material may be taken for credit in the major, upon petition to the Medieval Studies Council, provided that the student's principal written work deals with a medieval subject.
Students are encouraged to consult the current Five College catalogue of courses for offerings at the other four institutions. We also encourage medieval studies majors to consider proposing a Special Studies project or an honors thesis.
