Art, Music, and Architecture in Europe features three courses from the University Core Curriculum (UCC) exploring the visual arts, performing arts, and architecture of London and Paris. The semester begins with two weeks of field study in these European capitals, before returning to Miami. Students earn nine UCC credits through an immersive travel study experience in England and France.
London and Paris, the capitals of Great Britain and France, are global metropolises and centers of cultural production. Both cities were founded by the Romans, and played key roles in the development of music, visual art, and architecture in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque, the Enlightenment, and modernity. Visits to the museums and concert halls of London and Paris are integral to our study abroad program, and both cities offer opportunities to explore key developments in urban design firsthand.
