Introduction

The Renaissance Studies program at Yale offers graduate students the opportunity to focus on the history and culture of the late medieval and early modern periods, (circa 1300-1700) with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches.  The program draws upon the rich resources of various departments, libraries, and museums at Yale. Graduate students who are admitted into the program pursue the Ph.D. degree jointly with one of eight departments: Classics, Comparative Literature, English, French, History, History of Art, Italian, Music, or Spanish and Portuguese.
