The Global Studies Academic
- Dynamic and Interactive Classes
Imagine taking an Art History class using the city of
Rome as your classroom… Or sitting outside the Coliseum under the
sunny Italian sky, drawing a piece of history as part of our
“Sketchbook” class. Or maybe you prefer examining what it would

the city to feed the hungry. No matter the subject, our courses
offer you a global framework for understanding the local contextby
integrating the city whenever possible.
- Outstanding International Faculty
We vet our faculty based on their subject area expertise,
excellent in teaching, and their education--the majority of our
professors have terminal degrees. Best of all, we ensure small
class size to ensure great in-class discussions and strong academic

language: all of our classes (except language classes, of course)
are taught in English. And we offer a broad range of
disciplines—from International Business, to Economics, to Theology
