Freshman Academic Expo
August 29, 2014
The Freshman Academic Expo is an informational open house that offers freshman interested in majoring in art history, archaeology, and studio art the opportunity to learn about everything the Department of Art and Archaeology has to offer.
Come and meet representatives from the department, who will be happy to discuss the wide range of opportunities available. Learn about the many fascinating fields taught by our faculty members, how to plan a path of study that most closely reflects your own interests, opportunities for internships in museums and galleries in the U.S. and abroad, sponsored overseas travel for independent research, planning an archaeology program that can include participation in excavations, combining art history and studio art in our Program 2 track, and more.
We will also have photo boards showing some of the class trips that have taken our students around the world for on-site study. In recent years our undergraduate seminars have travelled to Guatemala to study Pre-Columbian art and architecture, to Shanghai to investigate urban planning and architecture, to Florence to study art and architecture commissioned by the Medicis, to Kyoto to experience ancient Japanese gardens, and to London to study Pre-Raphaelite photography and painting.
This year’s Expo will be held on Monday, September 8th, 2014, from 9:30 to noon in the Frick Chemistry Lab lobby. We hope to see you there!
