Florence, italy Study abroad | Summer 2018

A once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity, the study abroad trip to Florence, Italy, will allow a group of students to study Italian art, literature, and culture. While primarily staying in Florence, day trips to Pisa, Siena, Lucca, and Fiesole will offer students the opportunity to tour museums, cathedrals, and historical monuments. As part of the course, students will be required to partake in lectures, reading assignments, and a combination of on-site drawing and painting assignments to evaluate and identify important works of art and architecture of ancient Rome, the Italian Renaissance, and the Baroque Period and to appreciate the value and importance Italian authors have had on literature.
