Study abroad student

CAPA International Education
For six weeks, I studied abroad in Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. I studied art history by taking two classes through the CAPA international education program and the Missouri School of Journalism. I visited more museums and historic sites than I could ever imagine. I spoke to contemporary artists and sculptors. I did research on famous artists such as Michelangelo and Giotto. I created a website that can help the average traveler how to fully experience Florence. The program really helped me appreciate the beautiful, rich culture of Florence and I'm so grateful I was able to explore more of the world.
