Rome & Assisi

When it comes to history and religious studies, Rome is like no other. From the Colosseum to the Vatican Museum, this city offers something new (yet old) around every corner. With multi-day trips to both Florence and Assisi, you are bound to gain a great sense of the foundations and tribulations of both ancient and modern Roman Catholicism during this Summer A program.

This program is offered in partnership with the Australian Catholic University - Rome campus, which will serve as the base of operations and is where our group will stay. This partnership with ACU-Rome will provide a number of opportunities for our group to meet students on campus, and learn from faculty and scholars from around the globe.
