The Department of Art History offers Rice students two opportunities to study and explore some of the most impressive museums, cities and collections in the world. Over spring break every year, we take our HART majors on a free trip to New York to experience its museums and collections. Every other summer a faculty member and an advanced Ph.D. student also team up to teach a summer course in one of the greatest centers for art in the world. For these programs (regardless of one's major) the department covers airfare, lodging and site admissions.
How to apply:
Fill out the online application, which should include an unofficial copy of your transcript and a 500-word statement of interest explaining your reasons for wanting to enroll in the HART in the World: London courses.

The program is open to current Rice University undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of major or field of study. Graduating students should seek special permission from the instructor.
The HART in the World London program is limited to 10 students.
Participants traveling in the summer course will be required to sign a participation form and agree to pay a $1000 penalty if they withdraw due to a non-emergency related reason.
