This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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.

You will, of course, need FrikaC’s Majors Made Easier.
A big thanks to whiterider for the excellent tutorial.

I actually had to do a little research for my medieval medical career. Leechcraft deals with balancing the 4 ‘humors’, or fluids, of the body through blood-letting and other interesting practices. Yes, they actually did call themselves Leeches.

Major: Leechcraft
Description: Students of Leechcraft will study the medicine of the 4 humors of the body, and how to fix their imbalances through Phlebotomy, or blood-letting. They will also study related disciplines, such as Herbology and Astrology. Remember, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

A must for all young novices looking to become monks or nuns, Monastic Studies will give your sims a firm grounding from which to reach for the heavens.

Major: Monastic Studies

Major: Womanly Arts
Description: Spinning, Weaving and the Art of being Womanly: this course will prepare you with everything a young noblewoman needs to know to impress the Lord of the Manor and keep your castle running smoothly. That's all you really wanted out of an education, right?

Wonderful! The humor is totally in keeping with the atmosphere of the game. Love "Surely you Joust, Sir!". :D

Do these have any related careers? Is it even possible to make majors related to custom careers, such as some of the medeival careers on MTS? That would be handy.

I love it! "The Plague and You" is my favourite, I think. It's worth reviving my medieval 'hood just so I can use these in their proper setting!

I'm glad everyone likes them!

No related custom careers, unfortunately. I don't have the inspiration and creativity to deal with all those chance cards and outcomes.

As to whether they relate to the official game careers, child_of_air, my understanding is that they would connect to the same careers as the major they were cloned from, but I could be wrong about that.

I'm so glad there are still a few that are still pluggin along with our Medieval sims2 rather than ditching all that work in altering our games to be Medieval Simland, than to start all over again in Sims3. I can't tell you the amount of time its taken myself to get my game to be just the way I like it. And I think the only thing I didn't have is your Medieval majors, I actually haven't even indulged into University (schooling I mean) because the reason it was in no way Medieval but you've cured that and I thank you for that my lady or my lord

Your majors are awesome!!!

These are awesome, I could kiss you! And the icons you devised look so perfect. I just adore the spinning wheel and the mortar&pestle. Thanks so much!

I just followed the instructions in Whiterider's great tutorial, found here:

It's fairly easy to follow, the only tough part is coming up with your class names and such (imho, of course)
