Program Overview

Program Description:

Courses are offered both fall and spring semesters in architectural design, history and theory, studio art, art history, contemporary Italian culture, and Italian language. The spring roster also includes courses in urban studies and European politics.

Weekly classes use the city and its wealth of museums and galleries, archaeological sites, villas, churches, and remarkable public spaces for on site study, as well as Rome's many neighborhoods, for field-based learning activities. An extensive field trip program to many different regions of Italy beyond Rome and a varied and dynamic lecture series featuring contemporary architects, artists, and planners complements course offerings.
