The Alba and Venice Program at Roger Williams University is a short-term study abroad experience where students spend nearly three weeks in Italy, earning three credits in the following course, MUSIC 490 Wine, Music, and Food: The Italian Artistic Impulse, in which is offered as a Senior Seminar. Students do not need to be music minors, majors, or even core concentrators: this program is open to all students! Participants will attend concerts, travel and visit important historic and cultural sites, visit local wineries and learn about the making of wine, and experience some of Italy's greatest culinary creations at some of the region's finest restaurants and cafes. We will have daily meetings while abroad, and you will blog about the events attended and locations visited. Music majors, minors, and core concentrators will be able to use CORE- MUSIC 430 as one of their required courses (subbing for MUSIC 211, 212, or 213) as part of the program.
