Summer in Rome program offers wide variety of courses

Can you picture yourself in Rome next summer? Students who are interested in Salve Regina’s summer study abroad program at the American University of Rome are invited to an information session scheduled for 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 in the O’Hare Academic Center, Room 106.

Led by Dr. Karen Abbondanza de la Motte, Salve Regina’s summer program in Rome allows students to earn six credits by choosing two courses from a variety of offerings. Scheduled for May 25 to June 27, the program is a great option for students looking to fill core complements or anyone studying art, film, business, history or cultural and historic preservation.

Students will live in their own fully equipped apartments, minutes from the center of the old city and the Vatican. The program offers optional field trips to climb Mount Vesuvius and visit the ancient city of Pompeii, or to tour a Tuscan vineyard and visit Renaissance Florence.

The program fee is $6,650, which includes round-trip airfare from Boston, tuition for six credits, airport transfers, accommodations in student apartments, two or three group meals, a 30-day bus/metro pass, one field trip, official excursions and entrance fees, and international travel insurance.
