With Rome as your classroom, the possibilities are endless!
Make the most of your summer this year by immersing yourself in the language, art and culture of the world’s “Eternal City”. Choose from a variety of Italian language courses to strengthen your language skills and promote interactive exchange. Or, if you’re looking for options beyond language, Rome has certainly inspired some of the greatest artists in history—Michelangelo and Bernini, Titian and da Vinci. Now it’s your turn to sketch the city through our “Italian Sketchbook” course. Or, if you’d prefer to something less “hands on,” you can take “Art and Architecture in Italy,” through which you’ll make the streets of Rome your classroom, wandering the city to uncover its architectural jewels.
Students can also engage in another side of Italian culture by enrolling in "The Emergence of Modern Sport" class where they will use their newfound language skills to cheer on their favorite teams while learning about international sports cooperation.
Whichever course you choose, you'll see more of the city—and more of the country—than you might realize. You’ll tour the ancient cities of Paestum, Pompeii, Florence, Siena, and Assisi, learning and experiencing firsthand what makes Italy (and Italians) unique! You'll also visit the famous sites of Rome, such as the Arch of Constantine, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Basilica of St. Peter, and more!
