During the Venice short-term study abroad trip, students travel to Venice, Italy with Professor Jeffrey Hughes for about a week during summer to examine contemporary art at the Venice Biennale, one of the world’s major contemporary art exhibitions that occurs every two years on odd years.

Outside of the exhibition, students explore the sights and tastes of Venice. There are museums and churches full of art to discover, vaporettos to ride across the canals and lagoon, and piazzas in which to take relaxing breaks. The Venice trip provides a perfect combination of historic and contemporary art and culture of which to partake.
