About the Program

Program Description

Rome’s rich history serves as a backdrop for contemporary work environments that are diverse and dynamic.  The Study + Internship program in Rome allows you to make steady progress toward your academic degree while developing practical skills in fields such as business, marketing, communication, architecture, anthropology, international relations, and more. The program incorporates a professional internship placement into your semester or summer study program.  Our strong academic focus,  personalized placements dedicated to meaningful experiences that make a real impact, and multiple options and price ranges—from 8-week summer sessions to a full semester program - allow you to take care of those degree requirements and give your career a boost all while gaining the international experience you’ve been seeking. Learn more about the benefits of a CEA internship.

Program Structure

CEA’s summer internship program includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. The internship seminar meets for 22 contact hours and you'll spend 120 hours at your internship placement over 8 weeks. Together, your seminar and internship placement are worth 3 credits. Your internship placement hours may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.

In addition to your internship placement and academic seminar, you'll enroll in an additional 3-credit elective course, bringing your total potential earned credits to 6. Electives meet for 45 hours and run for 4 weeks in June or July to align with the academic study program offered at the CEA Rome Center. Courses meet at various times Monday-Friday; active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. Course options may be limited, as your primary responsibility is to fulfill your internship obligations, which include honoring your employer’s preferred schedule.

We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.

The placement process involves three Skype or phone interviews: a screening interview with your site specialist, a job placement interview with your on-site internship coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your on-site placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival. 

Upon placement, you'll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. You will be asked to indicate your preferred elective. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

If you have confirmed an internship placement in Rome through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.

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.
