When most of us think of art history, we usually conjure up
images of beautiful Roman or Greek inspired sculptures and paintings. While of
course you can learn art history from your stateside classroom, wouldn’t your
studies feel much more worthwhile if you came face to face with something as
monumental as the Sistine Chapel?
Christina Farella studied abroad in Rome in the Spring of
2010 and says, “Taking art history classes in Rome was a dream come true. My professors
taught many seminars in iconic galleries and locations throughout the city of
Rome, providing cultural context for each piece we studied. And rather than
being lectured on slides in a dark classroom, my classes provided the
opportunity to examine artifacts in person. As an art history student, walking
through the Roman Forum or inhabiting the same space as a Constantinian
portrait head was an unreal experience, and being in such an old and culturally
rich city as Rome makes you feel close to the immense history of each object.
My art historical education while studying in the city of Rome was one of the
absolute highlights of my time abroad.”
