Program Overview

Program Description:

Dolomit is your provider of study abroad programs in Trentino, the butterfly-shaped province of Northeast Italy. In this Alpine region, thanks to a unique cultural heritage and outstanding natural resources, we offer distinctive learning experiences to international students. Our dynamic summer program enjoys partnerships with a selected network of academic, scientific and cultural institutions, such as the college of art and design "LABA Trentino," the history research institute "Fondazione Museo Storico del Trentino," and the "Adamello Brenta Nature Park."

The Dolomit Summer School is based on Lake Garda, the largest lake of Italy, and offers college-level courses in fine arts, history, environmental studies, and Italian. Our teachers adopt an active learning approach, and class plans include visits, laboratories and educational excursions. The summer term is organized into five 3-week sessions, and students also have the opportunity to enroll in an optional “Discovery Week” just before the beginning of each session.

- Innovative courses designed as small-group integrated learning experiences that balance lectures, seminars, outdoor didactics, and guided visits to relevant sites.

- A unique corner of Italy – Trentino and Lake Garda – nestled in the heart of Europe and strategically located to reach other Italian major destinations, such as Verona, Venice, Milan, Florence, and Rome.

- Students' discounts and grants, including the opportunity to contribute with creative posts to Dolomit students’ blog.

In this rocky alpine environment, where the influence of the lake creates a Mediterranean pocket, the work of women and men has been shaping the landscape for millennia.
