CEA Rome Center & Providence College & Center for Theology and Religious Studies
The Theology & Religious Studies program represents a unique collaboration between CEA and Providence College (PC). Based at the CEA/PC Center for Theology and Religious Studies at the CEA Rome Center, it provides opportunities to explore historic and modern Italy in an active way. Classes are frequently held outside the classroom at notable monuments and churches. Additionally, you will study the Italian language and choose from other electives while in Rome, a cultural and religious crossroads and center of the Roman Catholic Church.
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.
For Gustavus Adolphus students: CEA uses semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 semester credits. Thus, some CEA courses, which are worth 3 semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.
