Baylor in Italy 2021


  • May 30-June 20, 2020 (proposed)
About the Program

Baylor in Italy offers a variety of courses from the departments of Classics and English.

While final decisions have not been reached, this year we are likely to offer CLA 3321: Roman Topography, CLA 2306/3380: Greek and Roman Mythology, ENG 1310: Writing and Academic Inquiry, and ENG 2310: American Literary Cultures.

We will spend our first week abroad in Rome, sampling the sights, sounds, and tastes that the Eternal City has to offer. Our second week will be spent in Viterbo, a medieval city just north of Rome. It will give us a different way to appreciate the Italian lifestyle. The third week will be in the Tuscan city of Siena, one of the most important cities in the history of western art. We will also take an overnight trip to Florence.

In light of the challenges caused by the pandemic and in the hopes of keeping costs low, we have decided to run hybrid courses this summer. We will spend three weeks in Italy and then complete some assignments online.

There’s a place for all kinds of students in Italy this summer. We hope you will join us!
