As an enhancement to the undergraduate curriculum, the School of Visual Arts and Design is sponsoring a program designed to immerse students within Italian art and culture.
Students will be exposed to a wide variety of Italian art ranging from the Etruscan period through the modern era, with a focus upon monuments from the classical Roman period through Baroque.
Participants of this program will visit churches, museums, temples, palaces and villas as well as travel in excursions intended to extend the breadth of understanding Italian culture. Lectures and presentations will be facilitated at sites instead of a typical classroom setting.
At the start of the Art History in Italy Program (ARH 3930), students will arrive in Florence, Italy and will end the program in Rome, Italy with excursions to Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti, Italy. Students will be abroad for approximately 30 days. Prior to participating in the program, students must have completed ARH 2050 and ARH 2051, or have the consent of the instructor.
Students on this program should plan to arrive in Florence, Italy by noon on the starting day of the program in order to be in country to transfer to the hotel.
