Study Abroad in Italy

Students from Loyola's study abroad program in Italy are busy this summer exploring the historic sights and sounds of the Italian capital of Rome, the fourth-most populous city in Europe. Loyola's Study Abroad program offers opportunities in more than 50 countries. The program in Italy focuses on art and religious studies.

Leading the Roman adventure are Dr. Terri Bednarz, R.S.M., Chair of the Department of Religious Studies and Assistant Professor of New Testament Studies, Penn Dawson, a former professor in the College of Law and a Jesuit deacon, and Fr. Gregory Waldrop, S.J., Assistant Professor of Art History and Chair of the Department of Art. Eighteen students are taking courses in Rome. The courses include Biblical Literature in the Roman Context, which examines the material culture and iconography referenced throughout the New Testament; In the Footsteps of Ignatius, a course on St. Ignatius and the early history of the Jesuits and Ignatian spirituality; and Art & the Jesuits in Early Modern Rome, an art history course on Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture in Rome with special consideration of Jesuit arts patronage and cultural policies.
