Programs ask us to contact you themselves to share their prices and what's included, as tuition prices can change depending on which university you attend and international prices change quickly. This program will get back to you in the next 10 days.
We'll pass this standard application to the program. They can help you to continue the application process from there.

Studio sessions + critiques supplement group visits to sites within the city, day excursions to the areas surrounding Rome, and an overnight 5 day field trip to northern Italy.
Students present one research project of a key site to the group, contribute to the on-line documentation of the course, design a book based on their personal experiences and observations of the culture, learn all aspects of digital photography, and finally participate in a public photography exhibition upon return.
Because the program requires some knowledge of Italian culture, and Roman art and history, participants prepare for the course in 1.5hr weekly sessions held during Spring quarter prior to departure.
As noted above, site specific visits and presentations prove invaluable as compared to traditional methods of research and study. Art, architecture, and design experienced in a historical, geographical, and cultural context, allows students to connect with their studies back in America. This type of first hand experience makes learning far more interesting, enjoyable, and memorable.
Additionally, exposing students to an entirely different culture where there is a greater appreciation to history, craft, design, architecture and life in general is an extremely important experience that ties in nicely with the basic principles and philosophy of our curriculum within the Division of Design.
