Spend six weeks in Florence learning about the leaders of the Renaissance and their continuing impact on modern culture through a six-credit program directed by Dr. Andrea Heiss, director of the Arts-in-Depth Program, and the CAPA institute.
This program offers students an introduction to the icons and egos o the Renaissance who continue to influence cultural reporting, the arts, and journalism today. The same ideals respected by students in journalism as well as those in the arts, sciences and humanities were developed by the thinkers, writers, inventors, artists and architects more than 500 years ago.
