Classroom Structure & Instruction:

Academic Lecture Classes: 

These classes meet 2 hours per day, Monday through Thursday. All academic classes have two all-day field trips, which are generally held on Fridays. Classes combine in-class lectures, discussions, and on-site visits. Academic courses are reading and writing intensive and will require a minimum of 6-9 hours of homework outside of regular class-time. 

Studio Art Classes:
These hands-on courses meet 4 hours per day, Monday through Thursday. One Friday field trip is scheduled during the session. Studio courses combine studio instruction, in-class demonstrations and slide presentations. When possible students go on-site to work or visit exhibits and museums of relevance to the subject being studied. All courses require work outside the classroom. There will be both individual and group critiques. More advanced studio courses may require written assignments and many require students to keep a sketchbook. 

Grading and Evaluation: 
Students are graded using the American University model of evaluation. 

Field Trips:
Every student has the opportunity to participate in walking tours of Florence. Most courses integrate on-site visits to museums and exhibitions and many may require day trips.
