Museums & Beyond: Art & Culture in Rome & Paris

Program Overview

Why study abroad in one great European city during the summer when you can explore the cultural heritage of Rome & Paris? In this eight-week program, you will explore how art and architecture have affected urban development, life, and culture in two fascinating European capitals, and how museums preserve, develop, study, and display their collections for the benefit of the public.

Start your program in Rome, where you’ll begin to appreciate how these cities have developed around the central idea of cultural heritage and patrimony. Then, take a trip to Tuscany to explore medieval and Renaissance transitions in the social functions and aesthetics of art and museums. 

Visit www.IESabroad.org for complete program details.

Why Rome & Paris?

If your goal is to study art and culture in Europe, this program offers the unique opportunity to integrate class-time with course-related trips to art and cultural management institutions, including visits to well-known museums such as the Vatican Museum and the Musée d’Orsay. 

During your coursework, you will study how art, architecture, and monuments have, at different times and in different ways, affected life and culture in Rome and Paris. You will also examine past and current strategies adopted to preserve, enhance, and communicate cultural heritage, and how major challenges facing museums in the 21st century can be addressed.

Student Life

We strive to make sure you feel safe, cared for, and at home while you’re away from home. Whether it’s the orientation program that makes you feel prepared, your housing that is well-located and comfortable, the cultural events that make it easy and fun to meet other international and local students, or the field trips and walking tours that take you to places tourists don’t usually see—we’re all about our student service. Learn more about the day-to-day studying abroad on this program. From field trips to housing, it’s all on IES Abroad’s website.
