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.

CHE 165, Chemistry and Art, is an introductory-level chemistry course.  Participants are not required to have previous college coursework in math, physics, biology, or chemistry.  It is a unique course in that it will satisfy both the Physical Science and Art/Aesthetic requirements for graduation.  This is a non-lab science course designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn chemistry in a different context – Art.  The course will include the study of materials used in creating objects of art (e.g. paintings and glass), art preservation and restoration, and nondestructive testing.  The course will also explore the effect of environmental pollution on the stability and longevity of objects of art.  The influence of materials on aesthetics will also be included. CHE 165 may be taken by science majors as part of their general course requirement for graduation.  Class meets on campus two hours a week during the second seven weeks of the Spring 2014 semester. In mid-May, students travel to Italy for about two weeks with visits throughout the country including Rome, Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius, Florence, Pisa, Siena, the Tuscan countryside, and Venice.
