Graduate Certificate in Medieval & Renaissance Studies

The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CEMERS) offers a graduate certificate as a part of its larger mission to promote innovative interdisciplinary work on topics that fall between late antiquity and the early modern era. The graduate certificate program is intended to foster the highest levels of concentrated work both within (related) departments and across departmental lines, enabling students to build an interdisciplinary program in either Medieval (late 4th through 15th centuries) or Early Modern Studies (15th through 18th centuries).

Application Deadline

The certificate application deadline is rolling.

Admission Requirements*

Applicants must submit the Graduate School's required admission materials:

  • Online graduate degree application and application fee
  • Official transcript(s) from each college/university at which you earned a degree (Current Binghamton University graduate students or individuals also applying to a master's or doctoral program at Binghamton University do not need to submit transcripts with their certificate application.)

Important note: Funding is not available to non-degree students completing certificate programs. Certificate students are not automatically admitted to master's or doctoral programs. They must meet the admissions requirements of those degree programs and be accepted. Students may concurrently apply for a certificate and a Binghamton University graduate degree program. However, a student cannot be awarded a certificate twice, nor can a student apply work for one certificate to a different certificate. Learn more about graduate certificate programs.

Applicant Qualifications

Applicants must be enrolled in a Binghamton University department.

Additional Application Materials

  • A letter of application, to be submitted to the CEMERS Director of Graduate Studies

Applications will be reviewed by the CEMERS Graduate Committee to assess whether applicants bring the necessary skills and experiences to succeed in the program.
