Program Description:
romeRome is one of the world's great cities, where glorious treasures and ruins of several magnificent civilizations are stage to a vibrant, modern capital.  Drawing on its fertile history, the Eternal City embraces the present and the future.  Romans busily zoom through the narrow streets attending to the details of modern life against a backdrop of classical antiquities, medieval buildings, Renaissance palaces, and baroque churches.

Sponsored by Trinity College, the program is nestled among villas and gardens atop the Aventine, one of the seven hills of Ancient Rome, overlooking the Tiber River on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other.  The site is centrally located to Rome's major monuments, affording a wonderful integration of classwork with field study.

Academic Program
All program participants take a full-time course load of 4-6 Trinity course credits to equal 3.5-5.25 Pomona credits.  Students are required to take an Italian language course. Students with advanced Italian may enroll in an Italian literature course instead of the language course. For the remainder of their program, students choose electives from the program curriculum. 

All elective courses are taught in English by Italian and American faculty.  The art history courses take weekly walking tours to museums, churches, historic buildings, etc. to supplement the classroom lectures. Internships are available and participating students must enroll in the program's Internship Seminar to earn academic credit.

There is no CR/NC option on this program.

Living Arrangements
Students are housed in dormitory-style quarters in a renovated convent or a nearby dormitory.  The convent is also the site of classroom instruction.  All students eat together in a family-style dining room on campus.

Number of Students
Trinity College enrolls approximately 50 students per semester, selected from a competitive national pool.
