The Center for European and Mediterranean Studies (CEMS), which is designated a National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education, offers an M.A. degree program and provides support, in the form of fellowships, workshops, and summer funds, to doctoral students in related disciplines from across the University.
The M.A. in European and Mediterranean Studies is an interdisciplinary program in the social sciences and humanities designed to prepare students for professions requiring an advanced understanding of contemporary Europe. The M.A. program draws upon the established resources of existing country programs in French studies, Italian studies, and Hellenic studies, as well as the disciplinary programs, and also offers courses of its own. Master’s degree students choose one of three tracks for specialization: European culture and society; European politics and policy; or Mediterranean studies. As a study center for scholars, CEMS also maintains an active calendar of workshops, colloquia, lectures, and periodic conferences, many of which are open to the public.
