Summer in Italy

Dates: June 5 - July 1, 2022

Please direct any inquiries about Study in Rome to program director Dr. Holly Flora at

Feel free to contact if you have questions about the logistics of summer study abroad.

About the Program
Students will spend one month in Rome, the capital city of Italy, home to the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Trevi Fountain, whose history spans 28 centuries. Immerse yourself in Rome's incredible culture of food, fashion, and art. Scheduled early in the summer, when tourist crowds are thinner and temperatures cooler (and also leaving the rest of the summer free for work, summer school online, or internships), the program can be used to fulfill general requirements or build credits towards a major or minor. This is a perfect option if your schedule does not permit semester-long study abroad or as a great complement to study abroad elsewhere.

Students will have the option to choose any two (3-credit hour) courses in Art History, Psychology and /or Italian. This program is open to students from any major or classification (i.e., freshmen, seniors or graduates). All courses are taught in English.

PSYC 3210 Child Psychology
This course introduces students to the scientific study of child psychology. The course provides a comprehensive overview of development from the prenatal period through adolescence. Course content emphasizes the multiple factors shaping development including the interaction of culture and biology.
