In their own words...
"My time here has instilled within me a special kind of character, one that only comes as a result of a community geared toward opening your mind... not just filling your mind with more information."

International Studies: Brunnenburg, Italy

St. Andrews has offered a full fall semester at Schloss Brunnenburg since 1983. Courses at the castle are annually taught by two professors who live at the castle. One of the professors is a literary scholar while the other is an anthropologist. The St. Andrews faculty member who is accompanying students this semester is Larry Schultz.

Schloss Brunnenburg is a castle constructed around 1250 in Northern Italy. In the mid-20th century, the castle was restored by Mary de Rachewiltz, the daughter of Ezra Pound, and her husband Boris. In 1958 Pound stayed in the castle writing the last six of his 116 “Cantos” of The Cantos. Presently the castle houses “The Ezra Pound Center for Literature” and is the home to the de Rachewiltz family. Students who are admitted into the semester long program have the opportunity to study abroad at the castle where they gain extensive knowledge of Pound's works. They are also encouraged to spend time exploring and experiencing the culture of the surrounding areas.

Instructor in English and Writing Ted Wojtasik has made the trip several times in the past decade. His essay on one of the experiences on the trip was recently published by the 234 online journal

If you are interested in applying for the program, which occurs every other fall semester, contact Ted Wojtasik for more information.WOJTASIK@sapc.edu;
