Program Credit

  • One block: 6 U.S semester/9 quarter credits
  • Two blocks: 12 U.S. semester/18 quarter credits
  • Three blocks: 15-18 U.S. semester/22.5-27 quarter credits

Individual courses may have additional prerequisites; for CIEE courses, these are listed in the syllabi below. Students are responsible for having their own course approval conversations with their advisors.

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.

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.

Individual courses may have additional prerequisites; for CIEE courses, these are listed in the syllabi below. Students are responsible for having their own course approval conversations with their advisors.

Course Information

Spring 2021 Term
Students may choose to study at only one Global Institute per semester. In Blocks I, II and III, students are onsite at a CIEE location. Health and safety conditions permitting, instruction will be live in the classroom for onsite students with some classes provided  via online learning. Contingency plans are in place to allow for program completion in the event of any academic disruption.

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

  • For Spring 2021, Academic Projects will be offered onsite (either in-person or remotely) or remotely at another Open Campus location, dependent on availability and in compliance with local health and safety regulations.
  • Academic Project placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements in location or within the GI Network either in-person or remotely. 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 enrolled for at least one block in advance of the Academic Project to prepare for and finalize the project and supervisor. As a result, students participate in an Academic Project in either Block II or III.  

Language Classes

  • During course selection, students interested in a non-introductory 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 opt into the non-credit “Survival Italian” course in Block II during the on-site orientation.

To help you budget, keep in mind that students are responsible for the cost of international airfare, local transportation, books and supplies, visas, and personal expenses. In addition, your college or university may charge additional fees for study abroad, or may require you to receive a transcript via CIEE's School of Record, which carries an additional fee of $500.
