Department of Artís May Seminar Abroad is one of the most popular May Seminars
offered at Concordia. After completing a semester long pre-seminar

and architecture of the great cultural centers of Europe. Students may
earn up to a full course credit for the pre-seminar with the seminar itself
carrying an additional full course credit. In recent years, Seminars have
have included travel to Austria, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Greece,
Italy, Morocco, Russia, Spain and Turkey.
In pedagogical terms, the Art Departmentís May Seminar Abroad is designed as an intense, immersive adventure in the history of Western art. As such, Seminar leaders provide constant opportunities for students to directly experience the most influential painting, sculpture and architecture of Western world. Equally important, the Seminar is designed to allow students to engage the history of art as a history of ideas and cultures, focusing specifically on the economic, social and political structures that makes the art of the West a significant -- and fascinating -- discipline of study.
