The Art and Architecture in Greece and Italy study abroad program gives students the opportunity to explore the foundations of European art and architecture with a major focus on artifacts, buildings, and cities. The program is unique in that it is open to all majors at both undergraduate and graduate levels and occurs entirely on-site with no classrooms.

Over seven weeks of travel (with weekends free), the program includes visits to Santorini, Crete, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Athens, Acropolis, Bassai, Epidauros, Taranto, Metaponto, Paestum, Pompeii, Sorrento, Rome, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Hadrian's Villa, Michelangelo's Campidoglio, St. Peter's Basilica, Florence, Brunelleschi's Dome, Siena, Vicenza, Palladio's Villa Rotunda, Venice, and more. Four courses in the History of Art and Architecture are taught on site as well as in museums by three faculty from the College of Design, offering nine humanities and three elective credits. The program has been offering Georgia Tech students a chance to explore this world annually since 1993 for more than 23 years.
