Programs and Opportunities

International Programs / Study Abroad

Art History faculty members encourage students to study abroad. There are many options for summer, semester, or year-long study and many majors and minors take advantage of these opportunities. The Art History Department sponsors its own J-Term course in Renaissance studies in Florence and Rome. It offers two summer programs in Italy: one in Rome on Ancient and Renaissance/Baroque Rome; and another in Venice and Castel Fiorentino on photography and modern art.

January or Summer Term


Summer Abroad in Italy

This program, in conjunction with UVA’s Study Abroad Office features hands-on academic and cultural experiences.  Taught by both Art History and Studio Art faculty, students complete two courses that combine photography, class lectures, and museum visits in and around Rome and Florence, Italy.



There are many study abroad programs available for Art History students. For more information, contact the International Studies Office (ISO) >
