Medieval Institute at Notre Dame offers summer courses (languages, paleography)

The Medieval Institute is pleased to offer summer courses in medieval languages and paleography to graduate students and to qualified undergraduates from Notre Dame and all across the country. Offerings are also available in other fields. While in summer residence, students have access to the bountiful resources of the Medieval Institute and its renowned library.

Most summer courses run from mid-June to the beginning of August, an ideal time to enjoy the luxury of uninterrupted study in the pastoral setting of the Notre Dame campus. Participants in the summer program benefit both from the expertise and commitment to their disciplines that our summer faculty members bring to their teaching, and from the smaller enrollments and shorter, concentrated duration of most summer classes, which also permit sustained and frequent contact between student and teacher. While graduate students, especially, find the summer program to be an ideal opportunity to acquire the skills they need for their programs, these classes also appeal to others imbued with a love of the Middle Ages.

Medieval Latin and Paleography, both seven-week courses are taught by Frank A. C. Mantello, professor in the Department of Greek and Latin at The Catholic University of America. Several other language courses are also offered at Notre Dame by both the Medieval Institute and the University’s Summer Institute in Ancient and Medieval Languages.

The Medieval Institute has the privilege of offering two CARA scholarships for summer Latin or paleography study, thanks to the Medieval Academy. See the application details.

Applicants for the summer session at Notre Dame should consult for information regarding tuition, fees, housing, and registration.
