This 3-unit, Faculty-Led Global Seminar meets SDSU’s College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) undergraduate international experience requirement, and fulfills the GE, Explorations, Area C: Humanities graduation requirement. Students explore the history of anatomy in the medical curriculum, and its connection to art by traveling to Italy where anatomy as a science began.
Students visit museums in Europe’s oldest universities in Rome, Florence, Bologna and Padua, to see historic dissection theaters and centuries old anatomic wax sculptures. Also visited are the Vatican Museums, Borghese Gallery, and Uffizi Gallery to view Renaissance masterpieces. Students enjoy all that Italy has to offer such as the world’s greatest food, the fountains of Rome, and the canals of Venice!
