Institute for Medieval Studies
The University of New Mexico offers a variety of Medieval Studies programs dedicated to university and civic outreach, as well as to the enrichment of scholarship, teaching, and research in the civilizations of medieval Europe and its neighbors from 500-1500. Through undergraduate and graduate degree programs, special student opportunities, and advanced research activities, UNM's Medieval Studies programs are committed to furthering the transmission and preservation of our rich heritage from the Middle Ages. Our programs operate under the philosophy that the study of medieval culture provides a powerful vantage point from which to evaluate our own and other cultures and to reflect on the complexity of human behavior and institutions.
