Majors/Minors and Advising

Becoming an MRST Major or Minor

You can declare as an MRST major or minor by filling out and submitting this form: Medieval & Renaissance Studies (MRST) Interdisciplinary Major/Minor Declaration Form

We highly recommend emailing and arranging a meeting with Gregor Kalas, the Riggsby Director of the Marco Institute, either before declaring as a major or minor, or after submitting the form, for more information about the program. We have also prepared a packet of information for majors or minors to help you plan your coursework for either program, which you can find below.


MRST Primary Majors: Johnny Glennan is the dedicated professional Advisor for primary majors in the interdisciplinary Medieval and Renaissance studies (MRST) BA program. Advising is required every semester until you reach 30 credit hours, then every other semester. You can schedule an appointment with Johnny via Vol Academic Connect. To prepare for your appointment, please review your DARS report/catalog and have a list of courses you are interested in, as well as questions for your appointment.

MRST Minors and Second Majors: Your advisor from your primary major will be your primary advisor, but you can email the Director or Marco Institute to arrange a time to discuss course availability, studying abroad, future goals within Medieval and Renaissance Studies, or anything else related to the program.
