Architecture Studies in Italy

This is expected to be a seamless program that will allow students to spend their spring semester taking courses in Italian language delivered by Sant'Anna Institute with credit being granted through Alfred State. They will gain further Alfred State credit in an architectural design studio which will focus on historic preservation, and this will be taught by Alfred State faculty. The studio component will be consistent with the listed student learning outcomes of CIAT 6306: Studio II. Projects will involve field measurement and notations, analysis of traditional building methods, documentation, and adaptive re-use design proposals. Complementing the studio work in historic preservation will be field experience in Pompeii and Paestum as a component of a three credit hour Archaeology course taught by Italian faculty. Students may also enroll in a three credit hour Architectural Photography course, as well as an online version of CIVL 5213, our concrete design course.
