The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) at Monash was established by Academic board and launched on 1 March 2012. The Centre draws on the expertise of academic and research staff from the Department of History and from across the university and beyond.

We aim to promote research and to provide specialist research training and support for honours and postgraduate students. Additionally, we coordinate first to third level units at an undergraduate level as a pathway for students into honours. To find out more about the pathway into Medieval and Renaissance studies, see the History major.

The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is located at Monash Clayton and the Monash University Prato Centre (the Bill Kent Library), and is the hub of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
