The Program in Medieval and Renaissance Studies offers a Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Medieval and Renaissance Studies; it does not offer a separate graduate degree. Graduate students affiliated with the program are Ph.D. candidates in Arts and Sciences departments: Art, Art History and Visual Studies, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Classical Studies, English, Germanic Languages and Literature, History, Music, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Romance Studies, and Theater Studies. Th.D. students in the Divinity School may also be affiliated with the program. It is not a requirement of affiliation to obtain the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate.
After a graduate student has been admitted to the University, the student should contact the Associate Director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Dr. Michael Cornett, to become an affiliate. Currently over thirty graduate students from ten departments across campus are affiliated with Medieval and Renaissance Studies. By becoming an affiliate, you will be added to the graduate student email list to receive announcements about events and programs in Medieval and Renaissance Studies here at Duke and elsewhere in the Triangle. You will also hear about calls for papers, fellowship opportunities, and other news.
