MILLE VIAE DVCVNT ROMAM – Go where all roads lead – Rome!

Study abroad programs in Italy are popular. And it’s no wonder! Italy is the perfect setting for learning about the history of the ancients and Western Europe, the history of the Christian faith, and the ongoing glories of art and architecture.

Calvin’s new program, Summer Classics in Italy, takes an in-depth look at the art, architecture and antiquities of this gorgeous peninsula. Earn college credit as you explore the Greek basis for Roman art and architecture and examine some of the history of Italy through the medieval period and the Renaissance.
