In addition to the undergraduate minor and the graduate certificate program we offer our undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to study the Middle Ages at St. Peter’s College, Oxford, during the summer. The courses at St. Peter’s are conducted by Oxford medievalists. Students may take the Medieval Studies Summer courses offered at St. Peter’s, or they can pursue independent projects, using St. Peter’s as their “home” base. Enrollment at St. Peter’s includes a library pass for the Bodleian as well as other Oxford libraries so that students can further their research projects while in Oxford.
