We have a number of students majoring and minoring in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, many of whom have won national awards and have gone on to excellent graduate programs. A number of our majors and minors have participated in the UCARE program with our program faculty.

The program also sponsors an undergraduate contest for both research essays and creative projects.
