3 PhD Programs in Medieval History 2023
A medieval studies program is centered on life in the Middle Ages. Along with studying the culture and history of Europe often in the 11th through 15th centuries, students may also learn about the art, languages, music, theater and literature of the time.
The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is a doctoral or post-graduate degree. PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy), and PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways. To receive a PhD a student must demonstrate original research in their chosen field of study, produce a dissertation on that research, and defend their dissertation in front of other experts.
