While in residence in Florence, art history graduate students encounter Renaissance art and architecture first hand via their coursework, field study opportunities, and interactions with art conservators and local museum directors and staff. They also pursue individual research projects on site and in some of the finest libraries in the world for the study of Italian Renaissance art history, including those at the Kunsthistorisches Institut, Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti, and at the Biblioteca Nazionale.

Graduates of this unique program have gone on to earn doctoral degrees at prestigious American and European universities, as well as to successful careers in academia, museums, the tourism industry, marketing, and architecture, among other professions.
