Discover Italy: Education

Rome

Gain International Teaching Experience in the “Eternal City"! 

Spring Semesters Only

The Discover Italy: Education program offers students majoring in Childhood and Adolescent Education an extraordinary opportunity to immerse themselves in a global educational experience and stay on track for graduation. Students complete courses in liberal arts and education on SJU’s Rome campus, which is located in the distinguished neighborhood of Prati in central Rome. Every week, students also complete field work in an Italian elementary school, an Italian middle school, and/or a British international school. While in the schools, students observe, team-teach and solo teach in a variety of classrooms in order to gain valuable experience. The Monday-Thursday weekly schedule of both university classwork on the Rome campus and fieldwork in the local schools affords students to time to explore Rome, and travel through Italy and the EU.
