Italy: American University of Rome, Rome

Overview

The American University of Rome (AUR) was founded in 1969 as an independent four-year institution and currently enrolls approximately five hundred students from Italy and all over the world. Students may take twelve to sixteen credits in a variety of disciplines, but one Italian language course is required. The language of instruction is English with the exception of the Italian language and literature courses unless the literature course is designated "in translation." AUR offers courses in several disciplines including archeology and classics, art history, business studies, communication and English, international relations, interdisciplinary studies, Italian studies, and fine arts. Many classes complement their lessons with on-site visits around the city, using Rome as a classroom. Extra-curricular activities, such as student clubs, social events, and optional field trips, organized by the Student Life Office provide learning opportunities for students and encourage student participation in Italian culture and daily life.

Additional features: optional fieldtrips
