ALL THE WORLD’S OUR STAGE
All Principia students are encouraged to participate in a Study Abroad program during their four years of undergraduate work—usually, though not exclusively, focusing on a topic related to their major.
Students in the Department of Theatre and Dance are offered regular opportunities to participate in arts-focused abroads. Last year, it was a chance to delve intensively into Shakespearean literature and theatrical interpretation in England. (Shakespeare's England abroad will be offered again in the fall of 2014.) Next year, we’ll be venturing to France and Austria! Voulez-vous joindre à nous? Kommen Sie mit!
Performing Arts in Europe—Spring 2013
Dr. Marie Jureit-Beamish, professor of music, and Hilary Harper-Wilcoxen, assistant professor of dance, will lead this exciting study abroad trip, which will explore European culture through the performing arts, particularly music, opera, and dance. Students will develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for how the performing arts have shaped culture in Paris and Vienna. Exposure to exceptionally high levels of artistic expression will help student gain understanding and insight into the role of the arts at the forefront of revolutionary thought.
