We offer an undergraduate certificate and minor, as well as a graduate minor and area certificate.
An active program
We host a variety events each year, including Mediaevalia at the Lilly Library and our annual spring symposium. Our student community participates in reading groups, social events, lectures, and workshops throughout the year. We also house an ongoing resource, the Journals Initiative, which supports the publication of three journals.
Tolkien Film Screenings
Come out to the Tolkien Film Series! We’ll be screening nine films throughout the semester based on Tolkien’s legendarium, including all six Peter Jackson films and three animated pictures. See the flyer below:
