Program Overview

Program Description:

Why study abroad in one great European city during the summer when you can explore the cultural heritage of Paris, Rome, and Madrid with IES Abroad?

In this six-and-a-half-week program, you will explore how art and architecture have affected urban development, life, and culture in three fascinating European capitals, and how museums preserve, develop, study, and display their collections for the benefit of the public.

Start your program in Paris, where you’ll begin to appreciate how these cities have developed around the central idea of cultural heritage and patrimony. It’s here you’ll  start your two cross-Center courses that will then take you to Rome, and finally to Madrid for two weeks in each city. Your courses will integrate class time with course-related trips to art and cultural management institutions, including visits to well-known museums such as the Musée d’Orsay, the Vatican Museum, and El Prado.

During your coursework, you will study how art, architecture, and monuments have, at different times and in different ways, affected life and culture in the cities of Paris,  Rome, and Madrid. You will also examine past and current strategies adopted to preserve, enhance, and communicate cultural heritage, and how major challenges facing museums in the 21st century can be addressed.

Setting Description:
If your goal is to study art and culture in Europe, you’ll want to explore the great capital cities of Paris, Madrid, and Rome. With our Multi-Location – Museums & Beyond: Art & Culture in Paris, Madrid & Rome Summer Program, you have the unique opportunity to examine how art and architecture have affected urban development, life, and culture in all three cities.
