The ACM London & Florence: Arts in Context program gives you the exciting opportunity to experience a comprehensive immersion in the arts and history of cities that have been central to the development of Western culture.
On the streets of London and Florence, you’ll trace the steps and experience the creative output of famous artists and writers, architects and actors — from Leonardo da Vinci and William Shakespeare up to the present day.
Expert faculty and guest speakers will guide you in classes that are frequently held on-site at landmarks in both cities. You’ll be immersed in contemporary life, too. In London, you and your classmates will regularly attend the theatre and live in a vibrant neighborhood. You'll have a homestay in Florence, study conversational Italian, and take class trips to Rome and Venice.
With nearly two months in each city — and numerous field trips to surrounding locations — you’ll gain an understanding of how two contrasting cultures have developed over centuries, while exploring the similarities of two remarkable cities, as well. You can also take advantage of a one-week break between the two segments of the program for independent travel.
