Global Learning (GL)

GL 125  Foundations of Global Learning    3 sem. hrs.

This course will focus on enhancing the learning of your global experience in Rome, Italy. This course will foster opportunites for students to better understand and reflect on the learning that takes place with a study abroad program. During the semester, we will access tools to assist in identifying cultural patterns, differences, similarities and values. While in Italy, students are asked to analyze their experience and personal growth, which will depend on your engagement in learning before, during and after your time in Rome, Italy. This couse is not meant to deal with logistics or practical issues about studying in Rome (i.e. packing, money, etc.). We are happy to answer questions regarding practical issues to studying in Rome during orientations and pre-departure meetings.

GL 350  Rome Experience    3-6 sem. hrs.

There are no “teachers” and “students” but rather a community of learners who live, study, and work together to try to address some the problems of the modern world, using Rome as the case study, classroom, and laboratory. Students will be expected to become full members of this community, lending thoughts and ideas to thetopics addressed, while also reflecting on their own place in the “community of mankind.” Students have the option of completed up to two portfolios for Heritage Series credit. Course only offered to participants in the Walsh University Rome Experience.
