The summer program in Rome offers undergraduate and graduate students of Art History, Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Landscape Architecture a unique opportunity to experience studying and living in Rome, Italy, and to engage in the vibrant artistic, architectural and design culture of Rome as an ‘open-air museum.’
- Two UO faculty members, one from Architecture and one from Art History, are the resident directors and main instructors for the program.
- Excursions in Rome and beyond allow students to expand their knowledge of Italy outside the classroom.
- Participants choose three or four from six courses (three in ARCH and three in ARH), creating a program of a minimum of 12 total credits (at least 9 credits for graduate students) and a maximum of 16 credits.
- Program goals include cultural enlightenment, architectural and artistic enlightenment, motivation and inspiration, as well as a valuable life experience.
