The Philosophy Department's 2016 Winter Session study abroad program in Italy was a huge success. With courses offered by Professors Jeff Jordan and Alan Fox, students had the opportunity to study Philosophy while visiting Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Florence, Volterra, Pisa, Siena, and Venice. Among the offered courses was PHIL 344, a course that examines the relationship of science and religion, as illustrated by the "Galileo affair." (Students even visited the Galileo House in Florence.)
One student had this to say:
"Italy Winter 2016 was hands down the best month of my entire life. There are no words to describe the feeling I got when I first saw the Colosseum, or when we did a long 18 mile hike to see the top of Florence. The 15 students got along so well I consider them my brothers and sisters. We had an amazing month filled with awesome food, beautiful sites and incredible experiences."
