Program Description

ARTH 342: Renaissance Studies in Italy

Minimum of 6 semester hours of related Art History coursework.

This May Term course offers intense immersion into the study of major monuments of Italian art and architecture, focusing on the Italian Renaissance. In addition to discussions on-site in Italy, students actively participate in the teaching and learning. Each student will be an enthusiastic guide at two sites of her choice. Students will keep a daily journal, which will be an important keepsake of their trip. Students gain confidence in their body of knowledge about art, improve skills in research techniques, hone their ability to think critically and organize their thoughts, and become comfortable speaking before a group and navigating foreign travel. The small size of the group allows flexibility in scheduling.
