Program's small size a strength, say medieval students

Students in large concentrations often relish the opportunity to trade big lecture halls for the intimacy of the seminar room. For students in small concentrations, tight-knit seminars and personal attention are the rule, not the exception.

According to Amy Remensnyder, an associate professor of history and the program's director, this is an example of "growing interest among students" in the program.

This spring the seven seniors graduating with a Medieval Studies concentration will represent the largest group the program has produced thus far, according to Remensnyder.
