Italy, Rome - Veritas

Veritas in Romeisalogo


Program Overview
This program is offered in collaboration with Veritas Christian Study Abroad at the American University of Rome in Rome, Italy. You can’t take two steps in Rome without running into a historical statue, building, ruin, or landmark creating a unique environment for studying topics related to Christian life and history. Whether you are interested in art, architecture, theatre or meeting new people, Rome is a great city to live your mission, to learn about your faith and grow as you serve a community. Veritas is a division of  International Studies Abroad (ISA). You will be attending classes with ISA students as well as Veritas students.

Students are required to take a course in Comparative Religions or an International Missions/Service-learning practicum taught by local Veritas staff. The remainder of the courses will be taken at the American University of Rome. 

The student will fill out two applications:
• George Fox off-campus application form
The Veritas Christian Study Abroad application should only be completed after being informed from the George Fox Director of Study Abroad that you are accepted for an off-campus study semester.
