Program Description:

Our Medieval and Renaissance Studies certificate program offers a graduate certificate at both the Master’s and Doctoral levels as part of its larger mission to promote innovative interdisciplinary work on topics that fall between late antiquity and the early modern era. The graduate certificate program is intended to foster the highest levels of concentrated work both within departments and across departmental lines, enabling students to build an interdisciplinary program in either Medieval or Early Modern Studies. Members of our faculty across the humanities engage with students in the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program. You can learn from experts in History, Literature, Music, Classics, Art History, and more. The curriculum will be highly individualized to suit the student’s desired focus. Upon graduation, students will have either the M.A. or Ph.D. in an established discipline, plus the certificate attesting to their competence in interdisciplinary studies. The added credential can be valuable for students who already have an idea of what their specialization will be, and who wish to understand it in a more integrated way. Binghamton’s Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CEMERS) welcomes numerous guest lecturers each semester, and also hosts conferences and other events. We invite you to visit our website to explore faculty profiles, to see event listings, and to learn what else the program has to offer.
