About the Program

Program Description

Delve into the political, economic, and business implications of globalization as you develop valuable skills applicable across a wide range of career opportunities. Examine the complex relationships between economic, political, and legal institutions and business organizations—all in the context of today’s fast-paced global transformations. You’ll gain first-hand experience in local business strategies and communication skills as you explore local environments, meet with professionals, and take academic field trips that provide real-world perspectives. Build the international cultural fluency you need to communicate effectively in an increasingly global world.

Program Structure

Students with no previous knowledge of Italian language enroll in 1 CEA beginning language course and choose 1-3 CEA core courses, 0-3 CEA optional electives, and 0-2 optional electives at our partner, the Providence College Center for Theology & Religious Studies (PC). Students at the high-beginning and above Italian language level enroll in 1-3 CEA core courses and choose 0-3 CEA elective courses and 0-2 PC elective courses.

CEA language courses meet for 60 contact hours/4 credits. CEA core courses, CEA elective courses, and PC elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits.

You may earn 12-16 credits (up to 240 contact hours). CEA classes meet 1-4 times per week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled on Friday.

Prior to departure, you'll select your preferred courses and indicate your estimated Italian language level. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. After you arrive in Rome, you'll take a language placement exam to determine final placement. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availability. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Italy. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

Courses at the CEA Rome Center allow you to explore and experience all that the Eternal City has to offer. Courses are taught in English and take full advantage of Roman history and culture, with a focus on active learning outside the classroom. Courses in all levels of Italian are available. The CEA Rome Center is in the vibrant Prati neighborhood, within walking distance of Vatican City, Castel Sant’Angelo, and other UNESCO World Heritage sites. This central location makes it easy to visit galleries, museums, art studios, local businesses, historic sites, food markets, and more—all designed to bring lessons taught in the classroom to life.

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in Rome, you can choose standard CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Life-Long Benefits
I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.

If you could go anywhere, where would you choose?

Can't decide? Don't worry. We still love you. Check as many as you like. Still not sure? That's OK. We would totally have a hard time too. Just check 'I don't know yet'.
