THEA 836: Greece, the Eastern Aegean, and Italy: Art History: Ancient and Byzantine Art and Architecture

Term:

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements: F5

This is the travel-study portion of Track One: Ancient Greece and Rome: The Foundations of Western Civilization of the European Studies Program. This includes a month-long tour of the Continent including Crete, Athens, Delphi, Didyma, Istanbul, Troy, Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Rome and the Vatican City, ending in the final week in London. During the tour, each student keeps a daily academic journal. Most students will never have thought seriously about art, architecture and city structure before going on this program but, by the end of it, each student should have the wherewithal to look at a building or a sculpture and understand its period, its aims, the way it was produced and what the artist intended by it.

Prerequisites: none.
