SAH Study Programs

The Society of Architectural Historians offers a variety of study programs that focus on the architecture and landscapes of different regions, periods, styles, and architects. SAH draws on a vast network of scholars and practitioners to provide members with programs of the highest quality and unprecedented access to buildings and sites. Watch the video to see what makes SAH tours unique.





SAH FIELD SEMINARS


Designed for: Those whose interest in architecture goes beyond the standard guidebook

Purpose: To provide participants with an intensive firsthand experience of a region's built environment

Length: 10–12-day program that covers multiple buildings, regions, cities, styles, and architects in locations around the world

Includes the following:
  • Site visits and lectures designed by a member with authoritative expertise and knowledge
  • Unprecedented access to sites usually inaccessible to the general public
  • An environment that fosters intellectual discussion and debate
  • Unique, customized tours that are not “canned”
  • AIA/CES learning units
While SAH does its best to include the most relevant and exciting sites for our travelers, we cannot include them all. Many travelers find it valuable to arrive a day or two early or stay on a day or two in order to visit other sites that are of interest.
