Florence MA in Renaissance Art

Study in Florence

The Syracuse Florence campus is a fifteen-minute walk from Florence Cathedral, which is located in the center of the city. SF is one of the oldest and largest U.S. university campuses in Italy and is fully up-to-date in terms of its computing facilities and wireless network. Florence art history graduate students have their own study in the SF library, and all graduate seminars are held either on site or in smart classrooms. The library is specialized in art history and has over 12,000 volumes. Complemented by SU’s extensive print and online resources, students also have access to some of the finest libraries in the world for the study of Italian Renaissance art and history, including those at the Kunsthistorisches Institut, the Berenson Library at Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti, the Istituto Nazionale di Studi sul Rinascimento at Palazzo Strozzi, and the Biblioteca Nazionale.

Conducting research at these and other institutions, and attending lectures, conferences, and other events held in Florence, provide students with an unparalleled opportunity to meet members of the international scholarly community and participate in and contribute to the lively intellectual life of the city. In their courses, students visit museums, archives, and conservation projects.
