Program Description:
The landscape of pre-modern Italy, populated by saints, mystics, artists, and poets, provides a foundation for this semester in Orvieto. Located on a hill above green Umbrian countryside, Orvieto contains remnants of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance cultures. Students examine these traces of Western classical civilization, exploring its relationship with present-day European culture. Especially appropriate for studio art majors, this program offers classes in the visual arts, creative writing, history, and literature. Students live together and receive ample time for independent travel. Organized field trips provide students with the opportunity to experience Rome, Florence, Assisi, and other historical centers of Italian culture. 

Because of the high cost of this program, participation is capped at 9 students per academic year.
