The College of Architecture, Art, and Design at Mississippi State University has partnered with the University of Arkansas Rome Center (UARC) for a summer study abroad program. CAAD students have use of apartments and studio facilities at the UARC, and courses offered in Rome will count for six credit hours toward graduation. Courses offered cover the humanities, university core classes, program-specific electives, and courses required for minors in the different departments.
As an SEC institution, the cost of the program and facilities is the same for MSU students as for UA students and includes a field trip to Florence and several local trips in and around Rome. Any MSU student taking six credit hours is eligible for financial aid, and no student is required to pay out-of-state tuition for the study abroad program.
The historic headquarters of the INARCH (Istituto Nazionale di Architettura) were located in the Palazzo Taverna for about thirty years, and it is in these rooms that some of the most important architects of the 20th century met to discuss their ideas! The historical city of Rome offers an endless source of learning opportunities for students.
Assistant Professor Andrew TrippStudents engaged in the incredible experience of Roman Italy through cultivating visual responses and stimulating discussion. View a gallery of student work from the trip: http://caad.msstate.edu/wpmu/sarcnews/reception-italy-abroad/
