With an exceptionally wide variety of painting, drawing, design, theater, dance, sculpture, photography, printmaking and fashion design courses to choose from, LdM is the perfect choice for students interested in the creative arts and design!

Course Listings

Course schedules are not available until approximately five months prior to the semester start date. For advance planning purposes, you may use the previous year’s semester schedule. For example, you would use the previous fall semester schedule as a good estimate for courses that are likely to be offered in a fall semester and the previous spring semester schedule as a good estimate for spring semester courses. Course offerings do not change much each year.

You may refer to the Lorenzo de’ Medici “Course Schedules” page to see what is typically offered in the previous semesters. Select “Florence” for the site and a previous fall or spring semester for the term.
