What You’ll Study

TOTAL CREDITS - 12-16 credits per semester

This program is designed for students interested studying abroad in Rome who wish to select courses from a wide variety of disciplines with less emphasis on the Italian language. All students must take at least one Italian language course per semester. Italian language courses are taught at all levels (beginning through advanced), while most other courses are taught in English.

LDM INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

API students have the opportunity to earn valuable credits through an internship experience with LdM in Rome! Students earn 3 credits for their internship placement, which is counted toward their total academic load for the semester, and which appears on the academic transcript along with a pass/fail notation. Students are assessed based on a weekly report, a minimum of two papers, and an evaluation by their academic advisor/tutor at LdM. Options are listed on the API/LdM course schedules on the website and will focus on placements in organizations engaged in socially meaningful tasks.

The Rome LdM Internship option provides Art History and Museum Studies students with the opportunity to participate in a Museum and Gallery Internship. Placements could include a museum, gallery, or church in Rome.

Students should indicate their interest in an internship upon application, and submit a résumé/C.V., essay, and portfolio (if applicable). The essay should discuss the student’s reason for applying, expectations about the placement, and a detailed description of the duties in which the student would like to partake in. An on-site interview is required of all internship participants. Placements are limited and cannot be guaranteed, so students are encouraged to apply early!”

TRANSCRIPTS

You will receive U.S.-transferable credits for courses taken at LdM from Marist College. Marist College is a four-year, fully accredited U.S. college in Poughkeepsie, New York.

COURSE OFFERINGS

Be sure to check for any course additions, cancellations, or closures, and remember to pay close attention to prerequisites and class times in order to avoid conflicts.Not all courses are offered every session. The course selection may vary and no course is guaranteed. Some courses may require additional fees for labs, equipment, etc. These fees are not included in the program cost.

Courses are available at lower- and upper-division levels. In general, 100 level courses are elementary, 200–300 level courses are intermediate, and 400 level courses are advanced. Students who choose intermediate level Italian or higher must complete a placement exam upon arrival to verify their level of proficiency. Students who do not meet proficiency standards are assigned to the appropriate course.

Note that all students must take at least one language course per semester.

When obtaining pre-approval for course selections, students should refer to the Marist College course codes and titles, as these will appear on the transcript. If you have any questions while looking at the course schedule or filling out your application, please call the API office at (800) 844-4124.

CREDIT INFORMATION

API partner universities in Italy issue credit according to the American system, whereby most courses are worth 3-4 U.S. credits each.

STUDIO ART COURSES

The class schedules on the API website indicate that many of the studio art courses involve two time blocks; students enrolled in those courses must attend both time blocks.

Placement exams for studio arts courses are mandatory for any student wishing to register for any course at a level other than beginning. Studio art placement tests are administered during the first week of classes. Students are provided with the exact meeting time during orientation.

COURSE MATERIALS AND LAB FEES

Many studio art classes require that students purchase their own materials. The cost of materials varies depending on the type of course. While students may want to bring some basic, easily transportable materials (such as brushes or pastels) with them, most course materials should be purchased in Italy once classes start. Students can speak directly with their instructors to make sure they buy exactly what is required for the course. Many studio arts and cuisine courses require a lab fee that is paid by students upon arrival. In addition, several courses from different departments require that students pay for visits and field trips as noted in the descriptions for such courses.

API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Rome programs. All excursions are subject to change.

  • Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri

    Pompeii is one of the most significant proofs of Roman civilization and provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past. The city was badly damaged by an earthquake in 63 AD and was completely demolished in 79 AD by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Life came to a permanent standstill in what had been one of the most active and splendid Roman centers. Although this tragic event ended the lives of 20,000 Pompeian residents, the ash that buried the town served as a sort of mummification for the entire city. The eruption thus captured a moment in time.

    Sorrento is a resort town set atop rocky, picturesque cliffs along the Amalfi Coast. South of Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast is dotted with numerous beach towns that offer great shopping and dining, as well as breathtaking views of the sea.

    One of the beautiful islands off the coast of Sorrento in the Gulf of Naples, Capri is a top tourist destination. Famous for its limestone crags and the Blue Grotto, students will enjoy the laid-back, serene nature of this exotic retreat.

  • Florence

    Florence is a city that welcomes visitors, artists, and students to walk its streets, to relive past discoveries in the arts and sciences and to glimpse the rich history that permeates every inch of the city. Florence is situated on the banks of the Arno River, surrounded by rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Some of the medieval artisan traditions are still alive today, as seen in the daily open-air markets. API introduces students to the sights, sounds, and art that embrace a visitor at every turn in the flowering city of Florence.

  • Tuscany

    To explore the wonders the Tuscany region has to offer is a relaxing and incomparable experience. The area features many hilltop towns, famous for the production of wine and olive oil. Thanks to ancient volcanic activity, natural hot springs are plentiful in the region. Of course, no visit to this region would be complete without a stop in one of these towns: Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, or Montepulciano.

API students in Rome live in apartments with other API students. Apartments are typically a 25-45 minute commute from JCU or LdM. Some API apartments can house as many as 7 students, although students typically share a room with another student. All apartments come equipped with a kitchen, 1-2 bathrooms, and common areas. Washing machines are available, and students are responsible for their own meals (though students at JCU will receive a meal plan good for 20 complimentary meals on campus during the session). Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee.
