The Department of Art History offers Rice students an opportunity to study abroad through our HART in the World program. Every other summer a faculty member and an advanced Ph.D. student lead a group to visit one of the world's great cultural centers. Next year the HART in the World summer course will be held in Rome and will be accompanied by a Spring semester seminar at Rice.
The program is open to current Rice University students, regardless of major or field of study. The Department of Art History covers airfare, lodging, and site admissions.
The course this year will be led by Dr. Sophie Crawford-Brown, Assistant Professor of Art History and Director of Ancient Mediterranean Civilizations Program, and Eilis Coughlin, Art History Ph.D. student.
