Here are five majors with a medieval flavor for your historical neighborhood – Chivalry, Leechcraft, Mercantilism, Monastic Studies and Womanly Arts. Each major has a separate description below.

They have all been tested in a Base Game + University environment.
They all have unique GUIDs and do NOT override any major.
No unusual class times or lengths.
All majors have custom icons.
