This study abroad program investigates the art and architecture of medieval Paris and the surrounding region. The focus will be on the architecture and decoration of gothic cathedrals, particularly from the 13th and 14th centuries. Students will spend the first two weeks of May Session in Columbus doing preparatory coursework, reading and research and will then travel with the instructor to Paris for two weeks of intensive study of the objects and buildings themselves. After initial reserach in Columbus, students will each present and introduce to the group a work of art or architecture in Paris.
For the first two weeks from May 6 to 17, 2013 students will be in Columbus, Ohio. The final two weeks from May 18 to June 2, 2013 will be spent in Paris, France and surrounding areas including day trips to Chartres, Reims and Amiens.
Paris is a cosmopolitan city of deep and vibrant contrasts. With over 2,000 years of history and its status as a world capital, Paris is a city with much to offer and discover. Whether you want to see its museums and monuments, or take advantage of its diversity from visiting quartiers where other languages such as Arabic or Vietnamese mix with French, you will certainly learn a great deal as you adapt to this megalopolis.
