The goal of the Renaissance in Rome Global Seminar is to explore an American experience in Rome through the lenses of art and literature. In addition to two rigorous academic courses, the students will experience many of the cultural wonders of Rome, including ancient ruins and monuments, museums, churches, and walking tours. This program will include site visits in and outside Rome and a trip to Florence to study churches, palaces, art, and the cities at the heart of the Renaissance in Italy.
