When: To be announced
Register By: To be announced
The 14th through the 16th centuries were an exciting period for the history and culture of Northern Europe. Art was influenced by a world vision completely different from that of Italy and this, in turn, influenced its artistic expressions. Study the works of the pioneers of Flemish art - van Eyck, van der Weyden, and Campin with their infinite landscapes and dazzling details. You will learn about reality and symbol in Flemish art and see how it influenced the works of Bosch. In addition to developments in Flemish painting, you will also learn about painting in Germany, as well as sculpture, tapestry, and the building of Gothic cathedrals.
May apply for general education requirements in humanities, art history minor, and electives.

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.
