This SIUE faculty-led study abroad program offers experiential learning in the history and culture of Italy, where some have argued the birth of modern consciousness took place in the Renaissance. The four-week program, hosted by SRISA (Santa Reparata International School of Art), will introduce you to the artwork, architecture, and history of Italy, through on-site walking tours, museum visits, and excursions to places of historic interest. The program is led by Dr. Carole Collier Frick of the SIUE Department of Historical Studies, a European Renaissance historian with several years experience in leading student groups to Italy.
