Wooster Summer in Tuscany Info Session

sienaWhy not learn history where it happened – in a walled, medieval city with the Tuscan countryside spreading around it in a kaleidoscope of vineyards, castles, and olive groves? Wooster Summer in Tuscany offers two full course credits over four weeks of intensive study and travel centered in Siena, a city that treasures and preserves its medieval heritage. The program will emphasize full immersion in Italian life, including “survival” Italian lessons and residential housing in the city center. Learning on location allows us to use the urban and rural landscapes of Tuscany as the main resources for our research. Madonna Hettinger, Professor of History, will direct the travel-study program and teach both courses. The program might be of particular interest to students whose academic majors do not permit a full semester of study abroad. There are no pre-requisites for either course and no previous experience with Italian is necessary.

The program will take place from May 20 to June 17, 2016 and will be open to First-Years, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.

Interested?  Come to the Information Session this Thursday, September 15 at 7:00pm, in Kauke 143.
