WHAT IS A UT TRAVEL COURSE?
One of the best—and easiest—ways you can internationalize your education at The University of Tampa is by taking one of the university’s travel courses. Here’s how it works: You enroll in an on-campus course with a travel component. After the on-campus portion, during the summer, spring break or winter intersession, you and your classmates take off, all while earning UT academic credit.
HOW TO APPLY?
Visit the Office of International Programs to discuss this course with an education abroad advisor and apply online at ut.studioabroad.com. Please note: graduating seniors may enroll in this course; however, degrees and diplomas will be delayed until the end of the semester during which the grade is submitted, usually the August degree conferral date.
This unique travel course combines Studio Art and a Contemporary Art Seminar component. It provides the opportunity for in-depth discussion and inquiry into contemporary art production in relation to a variety of theoretical, cultural, and historical topics. During travel, students will visit galleries, museums, and historical sites in London, Amsterdam, Venice, Rome, and Florence. Each of these cities is an artistic and cultural center and home to an extensive selection of galleries and museums. The Seminar portion of the course will work toward developing a big picture of the contemporary art world by looking at exciting work being produced today in the context of recent art theory and criticism to put these works into a theoretical perspective. We will base much of our discussions, reading, and analysis on artists and exhibitions that we can see during travel. Students will respond to their experiences in the Studio component with critical writing and creative production in any media.
