IES Abroad Rome – Language & Area Studies

IES Abroad

It is impossible to avoid the past in Rome. It eagerly waits for you around every corner, hoping to intrigue you with a worn-down step, surprise you with an unexpected fountain, or inspire you with soaring architecture. Come study the unmatched historic and artistic past of Rome while simultaneously learning about its modern role in international politics and business.

With a range of courses in various disciplines, our Language & Area Studies Program gives you the opportunity to study the city of Rome through a variety of academic lenses—from Economics to Journalism. You enroll in four area studies courses, as well as an Italian language course. No matter your current level of Italian language proficiency, this program is for you.
