About
The Department of Architectural History offers second-year M.A. students the opportunity to study at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London during the fall semester. Students enroll in the fall term of the Courtauld's M.A. program in architectural history, which runs from early October until mid-December. In the past, the program has considered issues such as architectural theory, urbanism, drawings and the concept of the architect. Several site visits are also included in the program.

This program is particularly designed for M.A. students whose thesis topic would benefit from research time abroad. Thus, students are expected to arrive in London at about the same time as fall semester begins in Virginia for a month of independent work on their theses. The Courtauld faculty is willing to advise students on their research during this time. Topics need not be restricted to British subjects as London is an easy and inexpensive point of departure for travel throughout Europe. Equally, some American topics may benefit from research time abroad.
