Additional Fee Description:This course requires payment of an additional fee to cover active learning components that are above and beyond typical course costs, such as site visits, entrance fees and other expenses.
Required Supplies: - Digital camera (DSLR, or with full manual functions, minimum of 4 megapixels) or - 35 mm camera (SLR, full manual functions) - 50 mm or equivalent lens (also a zoom including the 50 mm) If you use a traditional camera, you will be required to spend between $150 and $200 on film and developing during this course.


Learn how the camera can be used in a foreign environment as an exciting tool of documentary record, cross-cultural understanding, artistic expression and self-discovery. After an introduction to the fundamentals of photography, both traditional and digital, your camera will be constantly trained on the city of Rome itself, its architecture, history, people, and rich culture, and as you develop your technical, compositional and critical skills as a photographer you will create a portfolio of images that will both showcase and celebrate your whole unforgettable study abroad experience. Throughout the course you will be able to post your best work on the course website to record and display your experiences.

Your in-class workshops will develop your practical and theoretical skills, and your photographic trips throughout the streets, squares and gardens of the city centre will be complemented with a guided in-depth visit to the Rome Museums and Art Photo Galleries.

Throughout the course your instructor will frequently deliver critical reviews of your work, but you will also be actively involved in analyzing and evaluating your own work and the work of others in a collaborative atmosphere of constructive reflection and criticism.

You may choose to work with traditional or digital photography. Either way, it is absolutely mandatory that you bring a 35 mm SLR (single lens reflex) camera (digital or traditional). Digital cameras must have a minimum of 4 mega pixels. Traditional cameras must be able to be loaded with 35 mm films. Your camera must have a manual mode and at least a 50 mm lens (or a zoom including the 50 mm focal length). It must be functioning and, particularly if old and unused for a long time, has to be reviewed professionally before you leave the U.S. Do not bring any film with you as it is frequently destroyed by airport security scans.
