The discipline of art history is rare in that the object of study itself lies not in the classroom but out in the world. The Art History Program allows students enrolled in Art 400 (Histories of Art) to leave the classroom and see first-hand many of the works of art studied during the fall and/or winter terms, particularly works of the Renaissance and Baroque. By visiting sites and museums in Florence, Rome, and Madrid, students encounter many of the key monuments of the period, including ones by Michelangelo, Bosch, Caravaggio, and Velazquez.
