The Renaissance or “rebirth” defined modern culture- and the city of Florence was at the heart of this movement.  Join us for this 3 credit interdisciplinary course that combines art history lectures, on site sketching, visits to world renowned museums and galleries, and excursions through Tuscany to better understand how the Renaissance transformed the way we perceive the world today.  This course focuses on the interrelationship of art, literature, culture, and history. See the work of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Donatello and so many others up close! In addition to living in Florence and experiencing the city as a classroom, students will visit Siena, and the Chianti countryside. This course is open to students of any major.  The course satisfies an Arts Distribution (A) and will cover three primary areas:  literature and philosophy; art history; and sculptural production and experience.  Some course reading is assigned prior to the trip.
