Rome Short-Term Study Abroad
Short-term study abroad courses take place at Cabrini, but include a 7 to 10 day international component during the spring semester.
Study Philosophy in Rome and Florence, Italy! This course anticipates running again in Spring 2021.
Course: Roman Stoicism
In this study abroad philosophy course, we will discover how Roman Stoic philosophers approached questions concerning the nature of existence, self-discipline, happiness, and the gods. What sets this particular class apart from similar courses, however, is the opportunity to take our studies to Rome and Florence during Spring Break 2021!
Thus in the midst of studying ancient Roman Stoic philosophy, we will journey to Rome and Florence in order to experience the same climate and vistas of our philosophical predecessors.
After spending a few days in Rome and visiting several historical and cultural landmarks such as the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, and the Pantheon, we will travel north to Florence and experience the cultural rebirth of ancient learning known as the Renaissance.
This first-hand experience of the Italian peninsula will enhance classroom discussions upon return to the United States and allow students to cultivate an appreciation for our shared cultural and philosophical heritage.
In addition to experiencing some of the most breathtaking settings of Rome and Florence, we will have plenty of time to “do as the Romans do,” and enjoy all that contemporary Italian culture has to offer. For example, Italy is world-renowned for its cuisine, so we can anticipate sampling some of the best food the world has to offer.
Break away from the usual activities and destinations; join us in Italy for what very well might be a once-in-a-lifetime philosophical and cultural opportunity!
