In addition to its graduate offerings, the Strode Program supports UA’s interdisciplinary minor in Medieval and Early Modern European Studies (MEMES). This program is designed to encourage student engagement with faculty in medieval and early modern fields (300-1800 CE), with a focus on Europe and across multiple departments. This program extends student opportunities for critical thinking and engagement with a range of relevant issues and materials. For admission to the minor, students should meet with the Program Director (Dr. Tanja Jones, Art History, firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Strode Program also sponsors two awards for current English majors or minors:
The Hudson Strode Shakespeare Prize
