The London and Florence Program compares the artistic achievements of two historically prominent cities. Participants study the historical and political context of art, architecture, literature and theatre as well as Italian language. Visits to museums, galleries, theatres, short trips to other areas of England and Italy, and discussions with local scholars supplement this course work.

Students spend eight weeks in each city and enjoy a week-long mid-semester break. An optional intensive course in Italian language is offered every January in Florence. 

An ACM London: Arts in Context winter term (3 Knox credits) is also available.

Prerequisite: courses chosen from classical, medieval, and Renaissance history (including the history of art, music, and the theater), or in British history and literature.
Credits: 4.5 (one additional credit awarded to students who take intensive Italian before the beginning of the regular semester).
Period: one semester (winter-spring).
Program advisor: Professors Cate Denial and Greg Gilbert
