Art and Incarnation: Creative Writing and Literature in Rome, Italy
Rome: The Eternal City, birthplace of Western culture, cradle of Christianity. Art and Incarnation is a study abroad program created specifically for students interested in creative writing and literature.
Students spend nearly a month living and studying in Rome and will earn ten SPU credits. Through daily visits to places such as the Roman Forum and the Sistine Chapel, the Christian catacombs, and Hadrian's Villa, we explore the incarnational aspects of artistic expression from ancient to modern times. Shared daily excursions include brief lectures on the artistic and historical significance of the site, followed by interesting assignments tailored to each course. Afternoon workshops and seminars are followed by shared dinners in Roman trattorias, followed (always!) by gelato and a stroll around this magnificent city — the place where "all roads lead."
