Three Cities Program – Semester

Tuscania, Rome & Florence (Fall)/Venice (Spring), ItalyPicture of Italy

Experience the Roots of Western Culture

Our civilization is the end product of widely contrasting cultures which evolved over many hundreds of years. With the Renaissance, it became possible to unite the strands of these cultures in a new and exciting synthesis which prepared the way for the birth of the modern world. This semester-long study abroad experience allows students to retrace the steps of Greek, Etruscan, Roman, medieval and Renaissance cultures by living and studying in the three cities which embody these civilizations in all their richness and splendor: Tuscania, Rome, and Florence or Venice.

Students spend one month in Tuscania followed by one month in Rome, and if they are on the program for the fall semester, they finish their experience in Florence while for the spring semester it is in Venice. They follow a structured and integrated program of five 3-credit courses, which together comprise both a unique investigation into the roots of Western civilization and a grounding in modern Italian language and culture.
