MARS is very active in the graduate program in the College of Liberal Arts. It sponsors two graduate student organizations: Comitatus (medieval) and the Renaissance Student Society; and it supports the annual graduate student conferences affiliated with these Comitatus and RSS: the Comitatus Conference for Medieval Studies (meeting typically in February) and the Renaissance Prose Conference (meeting typically in November). The MARS Mondays lunchtime series, which gathers about four times each semester, fosters a sense of community among graduate students and faculty, and it promotes scholarship by MARS members. Beyond the university, MARS supports and is active in CARA (Committee on Centers and Regional Associates).
Although MARS does not offer a program in graduate studies, students can concentrate on medieval topics on both the M.A. and Ph.D. levels in their departments or programs of choice.
MARS offers medieval students and renaissance students opportunities to engage with like-minded colleagues in Comitatus.
