Program Description:
USFSP Leadership Ethics in Greece, Italy and England

June 22 - July 6, 2018


Program Description


Colosseum Groupshot

“To say that the study abroad trip I took with Dr. Ritch was life-changing would be an understatement... The places and cultures we visited made the material we were learning more concrete and complete. If you have an opportunity to do this, then do whatever it takes to make it happen.”
-Katie Meyer, Leadership Ethics Study Abroad 2007

The Leadership Ethics study abroad offers students of any major a chance to immerse themselves in the lessons of some of history’s most influential minds, in four of the world’s great cities--Athens, Rome, Florence and London. Study and learn practical leadership ethics in the places where many of the great minds wrote and taught the knowledge and wisdom that still guide moral thinking and behavior of today. Debate the proper aims of leadership, justice, and the nature of the life worth living at the site of the Academy in Athens where Plato taught Aristotle. Consider Niccolo Machiavelli’s practical as well as moral claims regarding power and self-interest at the same villa where he wrote The Prince while in exile from Florence. Explore the London “haunts” of John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Bentham, the most famous Utilitarians who envisioned a “greatest good” based on happiness and pleasure, and Thomas Hobbes, who championed social contract theory as a necessary response to our self-interested nature.

Do all this, learn practical ethics and systematic moral analysis, and still have generous amounts of free time to explore further the art, culture and history of these four world class cities!
