History Medieval and Early Modern Studies


Meredith’s strong liberal arts tradition makes the College a natural setting for examination of the period that created the university and saw the beginnings of humanistic studies. The interdisciplinary minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS) offers a rigorous, individualized, and cohesive but varied academic program with potentially broad appeal for today’s undergraduate students. The program combines traditional coursework in several academic fields with opportunities for directed research, study abroad, and special on-campus events. Faculty for the minor is a corps of teachers from several academic departments.


Because the MEMS minor dovetails neatly with majors and minors in history, religion, English, and art history, it offers a viable, attractive option to the student who otherwise might not complete a first or second minor.
