Education Abroad in Rome
The Rome Study Program is an intensive language and culture program open to all registered undergraduate and graduate students of UT-Austin and to students in good standing from other universities who register at UT-Austin for the summer session. Italian families host students providing an in-depth experience of Italian lifestyle and language.
The program dates are June 3 - July 14, 2024.
The Rome Study Program gives students of all majors the opportunity to study six weeks in Rome and earn from 3 to 6 credit hours; UT faculty of the French and Italian Department teaches courses. Classes will be held in a centrally located school near the Vatican City.
The program will sponsor class visits of Italian writers and filmmakers. In Rome, Italian art historians and archeologists will accompany students to the most prominent historical and artistic sites of Ancient, Baroque, and modern Rome. Students can visit some of the most beautiful Italian sites on weekends. Some field trips are included in the cost (Hadrian Villa and Villa d’Este in Tivoli; Anguillara and Bracciano); others are optional (Matera; Florence; Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Naples, Castellabate: to be confirmed).
After completing intensive first-year Italian - ITL 601C and ITL 611 C - students can take their first upper-division course in Rome, ITL 320-Advanced Italian that is not offered at the UT campus during the summer. This course will allow them to continue studying Italian at the upper-division level in the fall. Students can also enroll in the course taught in English, ITC 335-Rome at the Movies, the course will briefly sketch the rich life of Rome through films, including both fictions and non-fictions, popular cinema, and art films. We will study Italian films from the 1950s to the present, in their historical, political, social, and cultural contexts. Students interested in the program who are taking a sequence of courses different from the one above mentioned, should contact the Program Director: Prof. Amanda Bush, Professor of Instruction (firstname.lastname@example.org).
