SIT Study Abroad Tunisia and Italy: Politics and Religious Integration in the Mediterranean

 

 Study the interplay of politics, mass migration, and religion at the crossroads of the Mediterranean in Tunisia and Italy.

WHY STUDY MIGRATION IN TUNISIA AND ITALY?

Tunisia and Italy sit at the crossroads of the Mediterranean. Here, you will study the interplay between migration, regional politics, and religion. In Tunis, the country’s capital, less than 100 miles south of Europe and the birthplace of the Arab Spring, you will examine Tunisia’s peaceful transition to democracy. During a three-week excursion to Sicily, a port of call for immigrants, explore migration to Europe and meet with members of the North African immigrant community to discuss the impact of religious practice and formation of social identity.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
