About The Program

Surround yourself with centuries of Roman architecture, ancient aqueducts, and engineering as you study linear algebra. Juxtapose the structures and historical context of Roman civilization against contemporary Italian innovations in transportation and renewable energy. After class, make it your mission to see all the beautiful fountains of Rome—from above and below ground.

Where you'll study

The study center in Rome is located in the historic heart of the city, a short walk from one of the most beautiful and beloved piazzas. The Piazza Navona is one of the most outstanding squares, which features Bernini’s Fountain of Rivers at its center. The center serves as your home base for onsite lectures, language instruction, and meet-ups for guided tours. Within the center, you’ll find all the resources and support you need during your time in Italy. The resource desk is open for questions, program information, and travel advice. Relax in the comfortable lounges and catch up on email or chat with others on your program. Find your print news in the library—and when the beauty and art of the city inspires your inner artist, the studio space offers a place where you can be creative.
