Program Overview

Program Description:

Spend 3 weeks in the Eternal City of Rome this January with AIFS!  Earn 3 credits through courses in art history, Italian language (all levels), psychology, sociology, or religion. All courses taught in English. 

In Rome, you'll live in either a shared apartment or in an Italian homestay with a local family. Meal vouchers are included for use in select local restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Cultural and social activities are included such as Italian cooking classes, wine tastings, visits to museums, walking tours, and more.

A day trip to Assisi and the Umbria Region is included, and an optional 3-day excursion to Florence is available.

Setting Description:
With a mild climate and millennia of history, Rome has so much to offer students abroad. As a contemporary European capital, it is utterly unique. Located between Italy’s North and South, once the seat of a great empire and later the home of the papacy, Rome is still a special place – somewhat apart from the rest of Italy. Rome’s atmosphere is like no other city; it's a monumental, busy capital and yet an appealingly relaxed place, with a center that still preserves traditions and old-world charms.
