Below you will find information about the Arts units offered at the Monash Prato Centre.
We encourage you to consider taking more than one unit at the same time where the timetable allows. Units involving travel to more than one country, fieldwork or many site visits cannot however be combined with other units.
We require a minimum of 20 students to be able to go ahead with a unit. The maximum quota varies for each unit.
