Few places are more of an academic paradise than Italy.
Incredible art, history, and culture set against a backdrop of
gorgeous land and seascapes, amazing food, and friendly
people. As a student in the Joseph S. Bruno Italy program,
your assignment is simple: Experience it all.
Our program is structured so you won’t just learn about
Italian culture: You’ll live it, as a full-time resident of
Ariccia, a small town near Rome. You’ll be immersed –
literally – in Italian history on Auburn’s overseas campus,
the grand Palazzo Chigi, a 15th century palace once home to
nobility. Our 12-week curriculum is a fast-paced mix of
classroom lectures followed by field trips to bring
meaningful context to what you’ve learned. On weekends,
the rest of Europe is yours to explore.
By program’s end, you’ll have earned an International
Minor in Human Sciences, an impressive addition to any
resume in our global society. You’ll flourish in ways you
didn’t know were possible, gaining a better understanding
of the world and yourself. Most of all, your life will be
enriched with memories and friendships that will last
