Program Overview     


This year the Penn State Lehigh Valley Honors program study abroad will be offered during the spring semester break. Students must enroll in ARTH326H in order to participate in this international experience. This embedded course allows students an incredible opportunity to prepare for and engage in international study through coursework. In this course we will immerse ourselves in the understanding of the arts. We will discuss and test theories in the classroom, and further illuminate our comprehension with real world experiences in the Germany. While abroad. we will test our working theories, augment our understanding, and try to foster a better comprehension of what cultural and situational influences may have been important in the development of the artists and art. We will investigate primary sources, absorb and recognize cultural differences, and use our time in the Italy to become stronger global citizens. Upon return from overseas, we will embark upon using our newfound knowledge in a research project which will address not only important art historical information, but also a presentation in which you will be asked to reflect upon your experiences abroad and discuss how the experience informed you as a learner and individual.
