Study in Italy

Italy provides countless opportunities to explore faith, archaeology, early Christianity and personal transformation. Immerse yourself in Roman archaeology and the study of the Bible, explore key Christian beliefs and how they been recontextualised to promote personal transformation, or study spirituality in the Catholic tradition surrounded by the churches, cathedrals and art of modern and medieval Italy.

"The course at ACU appealed because it covered such a broad range of challenging and thought-provoking topics. It also offered the opportunity of a four-week study tour to religious sites in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine, which was a real drawcard for me. That trip was an outstanding, fascinating experience and it had a profound impact on me. It's made me engage in a more global debate around religion and politics and given me a far better understanding of how different religions interact. I often share stories and insights from my trip about the ways people of different faiths live together, sharing a common humanity."
