Summer Study in Italy

Every summer, students can experience Rome and earn course credits in a compressed one-month-long format, gaining all the advantages of the University’s Rome Campus, located in a safe residential neighborhood next to one of the largest parks in Rome, a short twenty-minute walk from Vatican City.

Summer Study in Italy - Rome & Florence
July 6 to August 6, 2022

At Assumption University, students can take advantage of the Rome Campus for an entire semester and also during the summer. Located in an authentic Roman neighborhood next to one of the largest parks in Rome, the campus is within walking distance to Vatican City and close to public transportation. A metropolitan bus/subway pass allows students to quickly and conveniently explore the city.

A Roman chef prepares authentic Italian meals. Housing is in double rooms with private bath. Wifi is available throughout the fully updated building, which includes a state-of-the-art classroom, in-house laundry facilities, and a lounge.

The Summer Semester features a month-long exploration of Rome and central Italy led by Professor of Italian Richard Bonanno, Ph.D., and Associate Professor of Chemistry James Hauri, Ph.D., each offering a course that counts in the Core Curriculum. Applications for Summer are due on March 15. The program will be limited to 18 students. 

The Summer program includes courses of particular interest to science and education majors and complements any academic program. Students accepted to the Summer Program are required to enroll in one of three courses offered. Books, housing in Villino Dufault, breakfast and dinner, transportation to/from the airport in Rome, a pass for unlimited public transportation (bus/subway) in Rome; a weekend excursion to Florence, and admission to various sites in and around Rome and central Italy are included in tuition. (Round-trip airfare, lunches, and personal expenses are not included in tuition.)

Not an Assumption student? Students from accredited colleges or universities are welcome to apply to study in Rome. However, priority registration is granted to students of Assumption University.
