The course seeks to form, network and empower talented students to evangelize culture. It elaborates and transmits the Catholic Worldview through an interdisciplinary study. Concretely, it consolidates this Catholic Weltanschauung in the students by looking at culture changes in history and the emerging global culture from the perspective of faith. Through this, they acquire a comprehensive orientation to interpret Western culture and the emerging global culture.
The students learn to appreciate the roots of Western culture. By analyzing the current situation of our society, they learn to understand the religious, ethical and philosophical context of culture. By projecting the responses to future challenges, they apply that knowledge to today’s world.
Classes by different experts take historical, religious, philosophical and ethical perspectives on culture. Through numerous occasions for fieldwork and cultural outings in Rome and beyond, these theoretical perspectives are enhanced by experiences at the very historical sites where they were once lived out.

The course provides an interactive methodology, combining lectures, workshops and outings. This enables students to be the protagonists of their own formation. To make this possible required, readings are assigned in preparation for the course.
The learning experience of the course leads to creative responses to a catalogue of questions about actual cultural challenges that the students have to deliver in form of group projects (such as essays, audio-visual presentations, cultural startup initiatives, etc.).
(Discussion groups will be according to the two tracks. Some courses will be given to both tracks simultaneously. Other courses may be given to the two tracks separately, or a theme may be changed to better address the groups’ needs.)
** some themes are subject to change depending on the availability of the teachers.
