The New York State Education Department has approved the proposed change of the doctoral program in Medieval Studies. The new degree name on diplomas will be: PhD in Late Antique, Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
Students who enrolled under the old name will graduate with the old name. Those who will enroll under the new name (those who have applied/are applying this year) will graduate with the new name. Thus applicants who will be accepted this academic year should already receive an enrollment letter with the new degree name on it.
