Program Titles for Fusion Experiences

CLST 276 & CLST 334R  Digging Up Sicily: Hidden Treasures and Lost Cities of the Ancient World 
FNAR 115 & LITR 268R  Discovering Italy: Food, Wine and Photography of Rome and Abruzzo 
ITAL 101 & FNAR 113  Disegni di Perugia: Learning Italian through Drawing in Rome and Perugia


Each course offered at the JFRC during its summer session carries three semester hours of credit.

Students selecting one of the Fusion Experiences will spend a brief time at the JFRC campus, then travel either to Umbria (Perugia), Sicily, or the Abruzzo region for much of the time. Students will be enrolled in both classes for their six hours of credit.

Benefits of a Fusion Experience:

  • These experiences fuse content from two different subject areas.  The two classes connected to each experience have been intentionally selected so that the courses complement each other. 
  • These experiences fuse theory with practice, as students will be applying what is learned in the classroom to out of the classroom, hands-on experiences.
  • These experiences fuse two different regions of Italy into one experience, e.g., Rome/Lazio with Abruzzo OR Rome/Lazio with Sicily OR Rome/Lazio with Perugia/Umbria, providing a comparative perspective.
