Study Abroad

MonarchStudents majoring in Medieval Studies are encouraged to spend at least one semester of study abroad and will be provided with assistance in planning their work abroad and in securing financial support for foreign study. Programs of study must be approved in advance by the student's advising committee.

An example of faculty-directed summer fieldwork opportunites for undergraduates is research done in Soissons, France.  The Wesleyan-Brown MONastic ARCHaeology Project at the Abbey of Saint-Jean-des-Vignes, Soissons was conceived in 1980, and begun in 1982, as a multi-disciplinary project that takes monasticism rather than the monastery as its object of study.
