Course content

You will study the art, literature, philosophy, religion and science of the period c.1300-c.1650, taking a strongly interdisciplinary approach, and learning from academics in the Departments of Classics, English, History, History of Art, Modern Languages and Cultures, and Theatre Studies.

You’ll spend an exciting, full term in Venice, studying the city’s art, history and culture from our base at the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava. The programme includes site visits, study sessions in Venetian workshops and behind-the-scenes visits to the warehouses of Venice’s museums. Modules focusing on Venetian culture, religion and art form the opening term, while during the spring term, you’ll explore the dissemination of Italian culture in Europe. Alongside these modules, we run palaeographical and research skills sessions to help with your dissertation research in the summer. You’ll also have unlimited access to relevant print and electronic resources, including ITER, Early English Books Online, The Making of the Modern World, and European Books, through our library.

Previous graduates from this course have chosen to progress to PhD study at Warwick or another institution, and/or to pursue a career in academia (most recently at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore), museums or galleries.
