- Program Description:
- Middlebury's program in Italy is designed for well-rounded students with strong abilities in written and spoken Italian. Our program emphasizes acquisition of language skills and intellectual development through a curriculum of content-driven language and cultural study exclusively in Italian. We strongly urge all students to enroll in the program for the full academic year: compared to a shorter stay, the linguistic, academic, and personal benefits of a ten-month stay are incalculable.
If you choose to study in Rome, you will take one Middlebury-organized course in Italian literature and the remainder of your classes at La Sapienza- Università di Roma alongside Italian students. La Sapienza was founded in 1303 and enrolls approximately 145,000 students. Students take courses across several disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
Participants in the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad don’t just study a language—they live it. Many of our students major in disciplines other than foreign languages, yet all bring a level of proficiency that supports their commitment to language and cultural immersion. They sign and honor the Middlebury Language Pledge because they want the greatest possible challenge in a study abroad program and an authentic experience in every respect; academic, social, and even professional. Participants take courses in most subjects with host country students, intern or engage in volunteer work, and live with a host family. Indeed, at every juncture of their time abroad, students have the chance to "live the language" and immerse themselves in the host culture.
- Setting Description:
- Since its founding in 753 B.C., Rome has been a center of culture, politics, religion, trade, and history. With a population of 2.7 million, Rome is a city that has learned to live in modernity while conserving its ancient history and architecture. Now a major European and international capital with several institutions of higher learning, students have the opportunity to study along with their Italian peers in a city with endless opportunities for learning and living.
