Learn about the architecture, social economics, and the human geography of Rome while roaming its diverse neighborhoods. The program takes advantage of a long partnership with one of Rome’s most dynamic and innovative universities,
Università degli Studi Roma Tre. Students will take a core course on Modern Life in the Eternal City or Waterways and Walls: Urban Planning in Ancient Rome and a combination of elective courses, including optional Italian language study. Students may also participate in activities to earn an Italy Co-Curricular Learning Certificate. The co-curricular program is designed to engage all students in the community in a variety of enriching activities and experiences.
Excursions and community involvement give meaningful context to academic courses. Examples of excursions and extracurricular activities include visits to Venice and Matera (an ancient city with cave dwellings), participation in film festivals, trips to the Amalfi Coast, and participating in a language exchange or English tutoring program. Take advantage of the community service opportunities or take part in an internship related to course of study.
