Italy Abroad Semester
Italy Abroad is a semester-long program designed to bring together exciting academics, cultural experiences, and personal encounters with a missions lifestyle.
Bryan College partners with Saints Bible Institute, located in northern Italy between the Italian Alps and the shimmering city of Venice. The Center is a 200-year-old converted farmhouse compound with two student dorms, a small cafeteria, classroom, lounge, and student kitchen. Its hometown of San Lorenzo is only a few kilometers away from a train station, gelato and coffee shops, and the local market.
Spring Break allows students to plan a week-long visit to a nearby European country like France, Austria, Spain, Great Britain, or Greece.
While classes begin during the regular Bryan semester, they fall into a modular schedule during the Italy portion of the semester. Students take nineteen credit hours in intensive modules. Lectures run 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM, Monday through Friday, with an extended lunch break. Homework for the next day is completed each evening. This system enables students to enjoy a deep, intensive look at each subject with their professor and classmates. If you have any special course needs, in addition to courses offered in Italy, please see your academic advisor.
