Courtauld Institute of Art
The Department of Architectural History offers second-year Masters of Architectural History 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.
The Courtauld Institute of Art is located in Central London, near Covent Garden, the City, and other universities including King's College London and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
This program is particularly designed for MARH 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.
Please note that the schedule for Courtauld is later than the other study abroad programs to accommodate the needs and curriculum of Architectural History graduate students.
