The American University of Rome has lined up an amazing array of opportunities for studying abroad in Summer 2022. Students can choose to select individual four-week, 3-credit courses from our extensive summer catalog or take two courses, at a discounted cost, and really immerse themselves in a subject they love.
All of our summer study abroad programs focus on experiential learning. While you will spend a percentage of your time in the classroom, each course makes use of Rome, and in many cases further afield in Italy, as an extension of the classroom and feature on-site, hands-on learning.
The AUR study abroad experience is available to undergraduates throughout late May, June, and July. Since we firmly believe at AUR that an important part of an international education is the opportunity for personal development that it offers, the academic week is four days long, running from Monday to Thursday. This allows students a full three days to take maximum advantage of all that an education abroad has to offer: opportunities for excursions, using free time to travel within Italy or to explore other European destinations; opportunities to discover a whole new side to yourself through immersion in a different culture; opportunities to build a network of friends that spans the globe – all the while gaining academic credit for your major.
Adding an international experience to your degree can be hugely beneficial to your future career opportunities: taking on overseas study shows that you are motivated to broaden your horizons, testifies to your cross-cultural communication skills, and will give you confidence in yourself and your own abilities. A summer abroad at AUR makes for a global education that produces truly global citizens.
