Study at the American University of Rome The American University of Rome (AUR) offers Cabrini students opportunities for intellectual, cultural, ethical and artistic development in the historic city of Rome. The American University of Rome’s focus on both a global and multicultural perspective allows students to broaden their intellectual development while focusing on building a successful professional future.
Like Cabrini, AUR also promotes a close working relationship between faculty and students, offering small class sizes, collaborative learning, on-site classes, and direct faculty involvement in campus life.
Academic programs at AUR offer a stimulating blend of both the classical and modern in the beautiful, ancient setting of a city that has stood for more than 25 centuries as a monument to human civilization; truly, the Eternal City.
All courses other than language courses are taught in English. Students may choose from courses offered through the Departments of Art and Humanities, Italian Studies, International Relations, Communication and English, and Business Studies.
Academic internships for course credit provide students with a practical “real world” way of relating their studies to career interests.
Student life at AUR is truly an experience unlike any other. Faculty and students at the American University of Rome think of the entire city of Rome as their “student space.” Much of your time will be spent on campus using the facilities and participating in student events. Most likely, just as much of your time will be spent in Roman cafes reading course material, or on a bench near the Colosseum writing your final course papers.
In addition, the Office of Student Life provides students with opportunities for personal growth and learning through an extensive program of co-curricular activities. Study abroad students are strongly encourages to join is with degree-seeking students to participate in student government, student clubs, and faculty-planned activities.
As a study abroad student in AUR, you will be housed in a typical Italian-style home furnished in a neighborhood surrounding campus. In this “full immersion” setting, alongside Italian neighbors, you will live “the Italian way.”
Not only will you better integrate into the community and share the experience of daily Roman life, you will also have the invaluable opportunity to act as an ambassador to Italy from our own Cabrini College.
