Fortin & Gonthier Foundations of Western Civilization Program

The Fortin and Gonthier Foundations of Western Civilization Program (Foundations) at Assumption integrates the study of politics, arts, literature, philosophy, theology and history to help students reflect upon the heritage of the Western world and better understand the interconnected nature of the various disciplines.

In the spring semester, the Foundations Travel Seminar offers a subsidized trip to Europe for 10 days. This is a terrific opportunity for students to experience various periods of Western Civilization. The trips are not a required component of the courses, but have been very popular.
