Course: ARTH 489H (3 Credits)
Location: Rome, Italy
When: Meets in Rome 25 June to 2 July 2022
Register By: 1 June 2022
Explore an exciting artistic time of one of the most historically significant cities in the world. The Baroque period was an intriguing time of great change. It heralded the dawn of new attitudes that ultimately led to the "Age of Enlightenment" and the triumph of science over faith. The art of this period reflects an obsession with death, with a new infinite sense of space based on a larger world (discovery of America), and with the exploration of the heavens. Experience artistic masterpieces still beautifully displayed today, and understand their historical significance in the birthplace of Baroque art.

A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
