Sant'Anna Institute is proud to use the experiential learning model where students engage with their professors via site visits. For example, Volcanology students spend a day at Mount Vesuvius. Archaeology students spend a day at Pompeii. Business students have site visits at local businesses. Please click on the course name for more information and sample syllabi.

All Courses are subject to demand and adequate enrollment, so it is important to get additional alternate courses approved.
