MRSC Graduate Certificate

Texas Tech's Graduate Certificate program seeks to encourage a wider scholarly perspective, and the acquisition of our Graduate Certificate in Medieval and Renaissance Studies enables students to document their special interest with a specialty certificate. It showcases student work that takes fuller advantage of the wealth of expertise we have here on campus.

Medieval and Renaissance scholarship is inherently interdisciplinary (see the preeminent organizations in the field such as the Medieval Academy of America and the Renaissance Society of America). Although the Texas Tech University faculty includes many teachers and researchers working in medieval and Renaissance studies, they often work within their individual academic disciplines, whose focused degree programs tend to limit venturing outside of traditional academic departments. The aim of the TTU Medieval & Renaissance Studies Center in general, and of its Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Certificate program in particular, is to provide a way to acknowledge and showcase interdisciplinary effort.

This certificate program is unique in the state of Texas. It can be taken as an end in itself; it can enhance a traditional degree; or it can be used by students interested in Medieval and Renaissance Studies who are seeking to increase their linguistic skills and subject matter expertise while seeking a place in a traditional degree program.

The certificate requirements can be fulfilled in conjunction with other degree programs. Entry into the certificate program is not difficult, and courses applicable to the certificate are offered each semester. The cornerstone course for the Certificate, MRST 5301: Methods in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, is offered every Spring semester. The Co-Directorsare available to answer questions, and can be reached at mrsc@ttu.edu.
