Program Description

Baylor in Italy (BII) offers a variety of courses from a wide range of departments, including Classics, Latin, Anthropology, English, the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core, and the pre-med program. Students may fulfill Fine Arts credit with Classical Mythology (CLA 3380), do intermediate or advanced Latin Language study (LAT 2310, 3311), be part of an archaeological survey (ANT 4690 – more information available through the Dept. of Anthropology), study British Literature (ENG 2301), learn on site in a Roman Topography course (CLA 3321), study Biblical Heritage with the BIC, and/or complete 8 hours of premedical courses.  

The accommodations in Italy are superb. In addition to our “home base” in Viterbo, Hotel Sant’ Anna in Rome, just a short walk from St. Peter’s Basilica, is a beautifully renovated building. On Capri, our hotel, located near the highest point of the island with its panoramic view of the Bay of Naples, is perfectly situated for strolls and shopping. In Paestum, the Hotel Poseidonia Mare is located right on the beach. And the hotels in Venice and Prato offer access to some of the most beautiful cities (and the best food!) in the world.

The sights, the sounds, the monuments, and the places you visit when you are in Italy become the classroom. In this academic program, you will take notes on site, visit excavations, climb under buildings, and see things off-limits to the general public.
