About the Program
Our Sociology & Religion Program takes you through millennia of Rome’s religious and cultural development. Courses consider the emergence of Christianity in the Roman Empire, the theological thinkers of early Christianity in Rome, social issues in modern Italy, and more. An Italian language course rounds out your Sociology or Religion focus.
All courses are trip intensive and include faculty-led visits to some of Rome’s most significant sites for religion and sociology. Imagine spending an afternoon in Assisi taking a pilgrimage walk to the landmarks in the life of St. Francis or seeing a live Papal Audience in St. Peter’s Square. This is study abroad!
