About the Journey

Benedictine College's Journey with Dante program is designed to provide high school students with an experience of our commitment to community, faith, and scholarship.

Rising juniors, rising seniors, and graduating seniors earn three hours of college credit while studying and traveling for 20 days from June 26 to July 16, 2020 with a Benedictine College professor.

“Journey with Dante” serves as the theme for the program.  The author of Inferno, Dante is considered to be one of the greatest poets of world literature.  Students will study the medieval time period, walk in Dante’s footsteps, view medieval and renaissance art with themes taken from his Divine Comedy, and make historical, theological, philosophical, and literary connections while experiencing Rome, Florence, Venice, and other significant sites in Italy.

Testimonials

“There are some things that you learn more about from experience than you do from the classroom. We didn't just read the Divine Comedy. We were guided, like Dante, through his life, to the places he lived and experiences that inspired what we know today as one of his greatest works.”

“From the moment I stepped foot on the other side of the world, I have felt my confidence growing stronger every day.”

“I discovered a new part of me.”
