What You'll Study
Stanford Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS) is a multidisciplinary community working together to reveal new perspectives on medieval and early modern studies. The mission of CMEMS is to promote innovative research and foster lively dialogue and debate among faculty, students, librarians, and interested participants. We aim to nurture the dynamic engagement with these rich and rewarding earlier periods of such literary, cultural, social and historical importance.
The Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages offers an undergraduate minor in Medieval Studies. The minor in Medieval Studies:
- provides Stanford students with an historical knowledge, framework, and depth through which to view globalism;
- embeds the study of medieval culture in a coherent framework that resonates with contemporary issues of community building, the virtual world and mobility;
- and promotes an innovative crossdisciplinary and skill-based approach to Medieval Studies.
