The Kansas State University in Italy provides study abroad experiences in a variety of academic areas. A highlight of the program is the College of Architecture, Planning and Design Italian Studies Program which has been providing a quality study abroad experience in Italy to students for over 20 years. The program offers the opportunity for fourth year students in the college who are working toward their masters degrees in Architecture, Interior Architecture and Product Design and Landscape Architecture to study at Centro Studi Citta di Orvieto in Orvieto.
Students will spend the fall or spring semester studying design and planning in the most extraordinary places surrounded by historic and contemporary examples of art and design. Students participating in the Italian Studies Program-Orvieto will take a full-timestudy of coursework offered through Kansas State University including an advance, interdisciplinary design studio, Italian Art History and Culture, Italian, and one of two seminars offered by the studio faculty. Classes are taught by both Kansas State University faculty and Italian faculty. A series of focused one-day study tours to nearby towns and cities as well as several multi-day study tours throughout Italy provide a substantial understanding of the interrelationship between art, culture, design and planning.
