SPU European Quarter 

Spring 2019

Program Overview

European Quarter is SPU's oldest study abroad program! Over the years, hundreds of students have completed the program, earning SPU credit while traveling through Europe learning and living together with fellow students and SPU faculty.  

This unique learning experience couples intensive study with opportunities to study the cultures, past and present, of three European nations; Italy, the Czech Republic, and France. Participants will explore both the rich history and traditions of these countries as well as current topics in contemporary society. Students will be introduced to the basic communicative skills in Italian, Czech and French. While your courses will be centered around languages and European Studies, your academic experience will be much more than meeting requirements. You will discover new perspectives, wrestle with challenging questions, and see abstract ideas embodied in real people's lives, all while being a part of a small, Christian learning community.

Your learning will begin well before we depart, as you equip yourself to get the most from your experience in Europe with a course you'll take during Winter Quarter. Once in Europe, our learning will take many forms: some scheduled, like traditional classroom lectures and discussions, site visits to museums and galleries, and cultural events such as concerts and plays; some unscheduled, like good conversations on long bus rides, one-on-one chats with a professor, and encounters with locals on a subway or in a coffee shop. In the end you'll find that learning permeates your whole experience--your classes, your worship, your play, and even mundane tasks like grocery shopping and laundry.

The program will begin with three weeks in Rome, continuing on with two weeks in Prague, and ending in Paris for three weeks. Many day trips and excursions are planned outside of these cities to give you the opportunity to experience the history and beauty of Italy, Czech Republic, and France.
