Why Art History and Museum Studies at Juniata?

Karen Rosell, Juniata College Professor of Art History

At Juniata, you will gain both studio and art history experience, as well as learn to curate exhibits of classical artists and your peers at the Juniata College Museum of Art (JCMA). Because of the many resources available to students--Juniata's computer art studios, pottery shop, JCMA, display areas, and others--as well as study abroad opportunities in the arts in England, Italy, Germany, Australia, Japan, Ireland, France, and Greece, Juniata's art department has a 100% placement of students in graduate programs in museum studies and art history.

Italy Through a Lens: Digital Photography Class in Florence, Venice, and Rome

Italy Through a Lens is an intensive, four-week, beginner level summer course that provides students with foundations of digital photography using Italy as a focus of visual exploration. Students will be introduced to the basic operation of a DSLR camera and learn basic Adobe Photoshop tools to gain an understanding of concepts associated with elements of art and the principles of design. Class time will be divided between work in a digital lab and photographic locations in Florence, Venice, and Rome. Italy will provide a significant historical and cultural context for the course.
