"Subtitle" is what you want.

The regular LaTeX classes don't have \subtitle, and I don't think memoir
does, either. I made one by redefining the \title command once, like
\sectfont would have to be defined to use this verbatim. But you get
the idea: you have to redefine the construction of your title page
somehow to include the \@subtitle. In the above, I glommed it into the
\title definition, which wasn't really such a nice way to do it. Better
would be to redefine \maketitle to do what you want, using \@subtitle.
Look in the class you're using for the definitions of \maketitle, and
you'll see what's going on. Copy that into your document, or your own
style file, and change it a bit at a time until it looks like what you
