The best thing about studying abroad in Rome, at least from an academic standpoint, is the close proximity to centuries of art. During my time abroad I went to museums on the way home from class, I passed the Colosseum everyday on my bus ride to class. I could get to Florence in less than two hours so that I could visit the Uffizzi. My experience in Rome was truly wonderful because I was surrounded by such a high concentration of art.
I've also done two travel interims with Dr. Schmunk. On those trips, you have a local guide to tell you about what you are seeing as well as the added benefit of 24 other well-educated Wofford students, two professors and at least a week’s worth of prior study to enhance the experience far beyond your average tour of an historical site.
