CEA Rome Center & CEA/Providence College Center for Theology and Religious Studies
Engage with highly topical global issues, like balancing the needs of a business-oriented modern society without compromising environmental preservation, and the challenges presented by immigration and emigration. By combining theoretical concepts and practical case studies, you'll gain insight into principles of environmental and business ethics, the complex interactions of human and ecological systems, the consequences of urbanization, the values of a new multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society, and why people plant new roots in a different country. Visits to local businesses, meetings with entrepreneurs, and other academic field trips complement classroom studies and give you the opportunity to think creatively, solve problems, and collaborate with others.
Rome -- the "Eternal City" -- has enjoyed the status of a global power and cultural leader for more than two millennia.
Today, Rome remains a hub of contemporary culture, art, music, cuisine, and fashion, as well as one of Europe's political and economic capitals. Rome is the cradle of Christianity, neighbor to Vatican City and the Pope, and home to nearly 900 churches. Romans themselves are gregarious and passionate, and their love for their history and culture is contagious.
CEA courses enhance your experience of this complex city, highlighting Rome and Italy's past and current importance in such fields as archaeology, history, business, art history, religion, and politics. Rome offers you an educational environment unavailable anywhere else.
