Location & Culture

Click to Open

With a history of over 2,500 years and a population of 4.3 million, Rome is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. The city is home to hundreds of churches, monuments, museums, as well as some of the most visited places in the world - Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon - all of which you’ll have a chance to see for yourself.

The Culture

Study Tour

Embark on a two-night/three-day study tour included in your program. Explore Venice, the oldest tourist and cultural centres and take in the ornate marbled and frescoed palaces, bell towers, and domes. Or immerse yourself Sardinia, which hosts more than 7000 Nuragic sites: these extraordinary monuments testify to an ancient, mysterious culture, dating back to the 16th to 15th Centuries B.C. Of these many areas, the Palmavera and Anghelu Ruju complexes in Alghero bear witness to the prehistoric origins of the region, starting in the Neolithic era.

EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

  • Visit numerous significant Rome locations to underscore and expand on in-class lessons.
  • Students participate in a two-night, three-day study tour to another region in Italy during each academic block. All study tour expenses are included in the program fee. 

Sample study tours:

  • Explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii before heading to the Amalfi Coast to see its stunning cliffs and learn about its tradition of local businesses and craftsmanship. 
  • Experience the Veneto region and its charming towns of Venice and Padua or fly across the sea to the island of Sicily and its late Baroque heritage in the Val di Noto.

PROJECTS

 

  • Volunteering. Help out at local retirement communities, arts organizations, youth centers, homeless shelters, and more.
  • Language support. Italian language partners (typically local Italian students) are available to help students practice and improve their Italian language skills.
  • Students interested in one of the following Academic Projects must submit additional materials as part of their course selection:
  • Internships. Build new skills and intercultural competencies and become an active member of the Rome professional environment by interning at a local business.
  • Research. Pursue a research project of your own design incorporating independent, local fieldwork.
  • Service-learning. Combine course-based learning with practical, relevant project experience to meet a community-defined need.

What you need to know

The program details

Students enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Rome the entire time or spend other blocks at our Global Institute locations in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Monteverde, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatán. Students may select one of six academic tracks:
Business; Communications, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture; or STEM and Society.

Roma Tre University. Eligible students staying in Rome for three blocks may be able to enroll in one local university course at Roma Tre University. Courses are offered in English and in Italian. Students should consult with CIEE staff before enrolling.

Academics

Click to Open

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas. Courses at the local university, Roma Tre, are taken with Italian and other international students.

  • GRADING

    The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students’ grades are based on attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and midterm and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Each six-week course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Rome when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

Course Notes

  • Courses are listed below by block and track; course list subject to change. Courses are in English unless otherwise noted. “GI” denotes courses that are offered at multiple CIEE locations.
  • Use the Course Comparison Tools to compare classes offered across all Open Campus Block programs for each block:
  • Mobile students studying for three blocks who wish to complete a lab course (offered in London, Monteverde, and Yucatán) will be required to opt out of one course to remain within the program credit range.

Academic Projects

  • Each Academic Project (Internship, Service-Learning, Directed Independent Research) placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements. The process is highly individualized and goal oriented. Students enrolled in an Academic Project will receive additional academic support that informs and enhances the placement experience.
  • Students applying for an Academic Project are required to submit additional materials during the course selection process.
  • To qualify for participation, students must be in the location for at least one block in advance of the Academic Project to prepare for and secure placement. As a result, students participate in an Academic Project in either Block II or III.

Language Classes

  • During course selection, students interested in an Italian language course will be instructed to take an online Italian language assessment to determine their proficiency level. Enrollment will be finalized on site and is based on assessment outcomes.
  • Students not enrolled in three-credit language classes may add the non-credit “Survival Italian” course to their course load during the on-site orientation.

Note: This course listing is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract between CIEE and any applicant, student, institution, or other party. The courses, as described, may be subject to change as a result of ongoing curricular revisions, assignment of lecturers and teaching staff, and program development. Courses may be canceled due to insufficient enrollment.
