Study Abroad & Away
Five-Week Session: June 19 - July 24, 2014
About: The Summer Sessions in Prague are designed to provide students with the opportunity to live as ex-pats for five weeks -- longer than most study programs. Students will expand their horizons and world view, and study the work of writers and artists who lived in the historic buildings of one of Europe's most beautiful, complex, and fascinating cities. Excursions, tours, and field trips will complement the work and writing done for the courses, and students will have ample time to explore the city on their own, to further pursue their own stories.
Session: January 4-18, 2014
About: This J-session course offers an intensive two-week immersion in Rome's literature, art, history, and culture. Students read fiction and nonfiction by noted authors; visit major sites — the Colosseum, the Vatican, Roman Forum, Pompeii, churches and other historic sites, as well as museums and places associated with noted authors. Students will participate in writing workshops at Lorenzo d' Medici and write journal entries and reading responses leading to an extended story, essay, or digital project, which may be done in collaboration with students from the AEMM department.
Session: January 5-19, 2014
About: Now students can follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, e.e. cummings, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kay Boyle, Richard Wright, Gertrude Stein, H.D., James Baldwin, Jack Kerouac, David Sedaris, and other writers who were shaped, in part, by their expat experiences in the City of Light. Students will live and write in the famous Montparnasse neighborhood where Hemingway lived, worked, and played.
