The History, Religion, and Urban Change in Medieval and Renaissance Rome program takes students into the fascinating world of medieval Italy. Program participants will learn about the intersections of history, religion, archaeology, art, and urban studies in Rome, and they will gain an understanding of what it means to occupy an urban space with a history that spans back centuries. They will acquire an appreciation for how the past and present are interconnected and will learn to see themselves in a new light.
