The Program
  • Take part in an internal field study experience in France that focuses on the history, legacy and cultural significance of the Monastery of Cluny from its 10th-century origins to glory days in the 12th century.
  • Explore how western Europe took its first steps in exploring and confronting the Islamic faith, under the guidance of Cluny’s great abbots.
  • Understand how modern France & Europe have developed Cluny as a world class heritage site, talking with local experts in archaeology, museum work, specialized libraries, digital reconstruction, and tourism outreach.

Your Host City: Cluny
Cluny is a haven for those who appreciate, or hope to discover “la France profonde” — the deep, genuine French heartland. A medieval city with a modern population of just under 5,000, Cluny is rich in major historic monuments. These include the ruins of the once imposing Romanesque abbey, and unique townhouses dating from the 11th & 12th centuries. Today, Cluny is a charming city with friendly cafés and tiny restaurants, attractive boutiques and galleries, and a bustling Saturday market that's noted throughout the Burgundy region. And of course, Cluny has more than its fair share of fabulous wine and cheese shops!
