Overall Experience
Absolutely worthwhile! I learned that you should always be willing to try new things, that people are rarely what they seem when you first meet them (in a good way!!) and architecture is a universal interest. Oh and I love living in a place where I can walk to everything!!! In the gorgeous Italian sun! - Alfred State College - SUNY College of Technology View Entire Review
I couldn't possibly list everything I learned, but I am a totally different person now. I have learned about independence and responsibility, how to deal with/manage people, how to travel and make the most of my experience and so much more. It is 1000% worth it.

About

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.
