Registration Still Open for Summer Trip to Rome

By Amanda Morad | April 10, 2013

Register now for the study trip to Rome, July 14-21.

Regent University's College of Arts & Sciences (CAS), in cooperation with Regent's Office of Global Affairs, is offering a new study abroad trip to Rome, Italy, July 14-21.

The registration deadline is May 1, but the deadline for scholarship applications is this Friday, April 12.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore the beginnings of Christianity in Rome while studying the Biblical and Church historical texts of that time. They will also have the opportunity to visit many ancient cultural sites, including the Pantheon, the Coliseum, the Catacombs of San Calisto, St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, and many historic churches.

Students and their family members are eligible for the trip.

"Reading not only the sacred texts of the New Testament, but also the writings of the early Church Fathers on location makes them become alive," said Dr. Corné Bekker, professor and chair of CAS' Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry Department, as well as the trip's leader. "Here, we will once again discover the truth and the power of faith in Christ that turned the Roman Empire upside down."

Two CAS courses will be offered in conjunction with the trip: Introduction to Christian History and Thought (RELS 111) and Advanced Independent Study (RELS 490). Bekker will teach both courses on site, with follow-up material online after the trip. On-campus and online students may register for the trip and take one of the two courses, but course participation is not required to attend. Students taking either of the courses will be allowed early access to curricular materials through Blackboard.
