The Graduate Program in Medieval Studies at Cornell University has been in existence for over 40 years. It was founded in 1966 to enable students to pursue a degree in Medieval Studies that would provide an opportunity for in-depth study of the Middle Ages from an interdisciplinary perspective.
We created the Cornucopia webpage with two goals in mind.
The first is to give prospective applicants to our program
basic information about Medieval Studies at Cornell
and an idea of the activities and interests of graduate
students currently pursuing topics in medieval areas.
The second is to serve as a general information portal for current students
