Medieval field

Since 2010, the Tri-University Graduate Program in History has offered a field in Medieval History. The European Middle Ages has long attracted the interest of graduate students in history. This universal trend is particularly visible in the three Tri-University Graduate Program. The central research focus of the medieval historians in the Tri-University is the latter portion of the Middle Ages. This fits with a fairly recent trend in medieval historiography to explore a previously neglected era. For a long time, and with the exception of Italy, the late Middle Ages was wrongly perceived as a period of decline. For this reason, the Tri-University Program is particularly well equipped to supervise doctoral students interested in the latter portion of the Middle Ages. By focusing doctoral supervisions on a particular era within the Middle Ages, the Tri-University History Program Medieval Field is distinct from other broad Medieval history programs.
