CEA Rome Center & CEA/Providence College Center for Theology and Religious Studies
This interdisciplinary program offered at the CEA Rome Center offers the unique opportunity to benefit from the distinct learning environment, regardless of your Italian language ability. The program's comprehensive platform provides advanced theoretical and practical tools that allow you to understand the political, economic, and business implications of a globalizing world, and develop valuable skills applicable across a wide range of career and educational opportunities. You'll examine the nature and implications of human decision-making in political arenas; the relevance of quantitative methods to the description and conceptualization of political issues; the nature, principles, and scope of distributive justice; the normative questions and real-life challenges posed by environmental problems; and the complex relationships between economic, political, and legal institutions on one hand and business organizations on the other, all in the context of today's fast-paced global transformations.
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.
