When you come to Rome for our semester program, you don’t have to imagine the history, the art, and the culture—you actually get to experience it! You will be immersed in life in Italy while having the opportunity to be academically challenged by qualified professors teaching from a Christian worldview. Learning to think critically in a global context will enable you to live out and defend your faith in today’s post-Christian culture, as well as to function effectively in today’s global environment.
For three months, Italy will be your classroom as we take an unforgettable plunge into the glorious past of Rome, a breath-taking walk through the monumental witnesses and imposing buildings of the Eternal City. We’ll also see the current influences of Italian politics, religion, and customs that make Italy the complex culture that it is today.
