Join us in Rome this summer. Study Italian language and culture on location in the heart of Rome. Immerse yourself in 2,000 years of history. Be part of Italian families. Weekly field trips through Rome. Excursions to Florence, Tivoli, Tarquinia, Pompei and Venezia.
Students live with local families and become part of the community as they interact with its daily life. They have their own room with the host family and take breakfasts and dinners together. Lunch is often organized for the group, consisting of a picnic with fresh food bought in the local shops and markets.
Classes are held at a local high school every weekday afternoon. The program director, Teresa Murano, a native of Rome, instructs the intermediate-level Italian language and culture class. There are visits to local points of interest, including museums, churches, art shows, markets, beaches or the picturesque countryside.
More information soon.
Students receive 6 credits for either IT 157 or IT 207, Italian in Italy, depending on prior language experience. Either course counts toward the Italian minor or major and each is a part of a Humanities cluster.
