Students in our department have numerous opportunities to study abroad, whether in another language or in English.

Art History and Museum Studies

The education of art history students is greatly enriched by study abroad. Through direct exposure to the art and architecture of the host country and courses examining that art in detail, students deepen their understanding of art in invaluable ways. Art history courses are available at many of Middlebury’s more than 40 schools abroad. Students may study art history in major international centers, including Paris, Florence, and Madrid, and experience the thriving art scenes in Beijing and Tokyo.

Program possibilities include the Danish International Studies Program in Copenhagen, the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in ParisUniversity College Dublin and the Facoltà di Architettura at the Università di Ferrara in Italy.
