This program is unlike most study-abroad programs; it offers students an opportunity to experience firsthand the roots of our culture. While in Rome, students take Western Civilization I, Art and Architecture of Rome, Western Theological Tradition, The Human Person, and Literary Tradition III.
Students read about Julius Caesar and Agamemnon one day and find themselves immersed
in the actual places of these histories and myths the next. They travel across seas
and landscapes where major battles were decided; they recite Greek tragedies in the
theaters where they were originally performed; they come face to face with works of
art and architecture that have inspired humankind for centuries; and they visit some
of the holiest shrines and most beautiful monuments of the Roman Catholic Church.
