Any Geneva College student who will have completed their freshman year, has a minimum 2.5 GPA, good academic and social standing, and has completed or will complete Invitation to the Humanities (Humanities 103) prior to going to Rome is eligible for participation.
Also, non-Geneva College students enrolled at CCCU-affiliated institutions who have completed their freshman year are eligible to participate. Non-Geneva students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and good academic and social standing at their home institution. There are no course prerequisites for non-Geneva students.
Geneva students who have completed other Humanities courses (such as HUM 203, 303 or 304) may participate in the program, but must complete HUM 300 in Rome. Humanities 300 will take the place of any Humanities course completed on campus and be considered as fulfillment of a student’s core requirement in Humanities. Previously completed courses will count as elective hours. For example: A student going to Rome has completed HUM 203 already. That course will be counted as three hours of elective credit toward the student’s academic program and HUM 300 will fulfill all of the student’s core Humanities requirements (except HUM 103).
Of Geneva's 96 full-time faculty members, 76% have earned doctorates.
