The Renaissance

If you're a Reinhardt student or a faculty/staff member, alumni or friend of Reinhardt, you can join Reinhardt University for a once in a lifetime adventure to Italy and Germany in 2021.

This is your chance to study and experience the explosion of commerce, culture, knowledge, literacy and the arts of the Renaissance. Immerse yourself in the Renaissance through a truly educational experience.


  • Commerce and the Renaissance (Dr. Dana Hall)
  • International Business (Dr. Dana Hall)
  • Music & Patronage in the Renaissance (Dr. Martha Shaw)
  • Intellectual Culture and the Renaissance (Dr. Mark Roberts)

Students must register for four classes. Most will register for the list above. If you have taken these courses we can discuss an appropriate directed study or substitute course.

Special note: Participants who wish to join the travel portion of the program with no course credit (auditors) are welcome. There is a very limited number of these seats. Please contact coordinators for pricing structure. Auditors are required to participate in all educational group activities on the trip and follow all guidelines. There will also be an additional fee to cover particular fees or costs.
