In conjunction with the History Program, and the Centre for Religious Studies, the CMRS offers several undergraduate units taught in intensive mode in Prato each year. The timing of these units overlaps with postgraduate and staff research visits to Europe, and undergraduates have the opportunity to interact with researchers working in the highest level in their fields. Our students relish the opportunity to engage with the European medieval and Renaissance past both physically and intellectually. Why not make ‘Med-Ren month’ at Prato part of your degree?
