An Invitation

Join us for an exciting study tour to Italy. For eleven days over spring break (March 5-15, 2015) we will visit Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. But this will be much more than a tour of beautiful sights and famous places.

During spring semester 2015 students can enroll in a class to learn about ancient, Renaissance and contemporary Italy, and prepare for the tour. Then, over spring break, we will travel together as a class.

Each professor will apply their special expertise to help you develop an intellectual context for your travel experiences. Professor Joseph Kunkel’s Political Science class will be introduced to the political history of the Roman republic and empire, the rise of Christianity and the rebirth of appreciation for the ancients in the Renaissance. Professor Alisa Eimen's cass will study the role of art and architecture in history and understand history as an activity of the presen that helps to frame and explain the past through objects, monuments and museums. Both classes will come together to learn about the places we will visit, to get acquainted and to prepare for international travel as a group.

In both addition to expertly guided tours in Rome and Pompeii you will have quite a bit of free time for independent explorations well as opportunities for shopping and dining.
