Medieval studies

Find your edge with UVic's Medieval Studies Program.

New old worlds

The Middle Ages are sometimes idealized as an age of heroics or misunderstood as a dark period. They were a complex period in the evolution of our modern world marked by extraordinary artistic, intellectual and social achievements.

Our Medieval Studies Program introduces you to other times and places, to societies and arts that look strangely familiar, though radically different. Meet the stories, civilizations and ideas that created our cultures.

Undergraduate students can choose from our honours, major or general/minor programs.
