- Program Description:
In this eight-week summer program beginning in London and moving on to Paris, students will study the historical development of architectural styles and aesthetics. Courses will draw on the art and architecture of the cities themselves and on their extraordinary museums. Through classroom lectures and local excursions in both cities, students will be asked to consider and account for points of similarity and difference in architectural detail and aesthetics. Students will spend four weeks in London, completing one course before moving on to the remaining four weeks in Paris to complete the second course. This program is ideal for students interested in art history, architecture and urban studies.
Courses are taught at the BU London Academic Center in South Kensington and at the BU Paris Academic Center in the 15th Arrondissement within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower.
