Florence: City of Art—City As Art
Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, is pleased to announce that students can apply now to enroll at SACI, starting in fall 2015, to earn a Master of Arts degree in Art History. In SACI’s new unique one-year MA in Art History program students live in the city that, during the Renaissance, revolutionized art and has since served as an inspiration and catalyst for generations of artists and art historians. They work in an environment of rigorous critical inquiry at an institution known for its formation of creative contemporary artists and scholars.

Classes are held on site and in SACI’s two landmark palazzi in Florence’s historic center. These fully renovated Renaissance buildings are a short walk from Florence’s renowned Uffizi, Bargello, Accademia, and Palazzo Pitti museums and a number of the world’s greatest libraries. Students also have access to the remarkable modern and contemporary collections of the nearby Museo del Novecento and Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art.

The major discipline can be chosen from any of the following areas:
– Italian Late Medieval & Early Renaissance
– Italian High Renaissance, Mannerist, & Early Baroque
– Baroque & Rococo European & Italian
– 19th-Century European & Italian
– Modern European & Italian
– Contemporary European & Italian
– Women and the Arts in Italy
– Contemporary Art Theory & Criticism
– History of Italian Cinema
– Museology

Students enroll for one academic year from September through July and earn 36 credits. They travel to art-historically important sites and major museums throughout Italy and elsewhere in Europe, study historiography and research methodology in special graduate seminars, and focus on a broad range of art history topics as well as those specific to their own research interests. Their scholarly endeavors, which are rooted in direct experience of Italian and European art and culture, culminate in the writing of a thesis on a subject selected by the student and approved by his or her faculty advisors.

By exploiting fully the advantages of advanced study in Florence, SACI seeks to develop scholars who, because of the unique nature of their graduate training at SACI, will be highly competitive when seeking admission to doctoral programs in Art History.
