Italy: History, Culture, and Experience

This 12-day seminar introduces students to the history and culture of the Eternal City, with a focus on the built environment. Notre Dame faculty in a range of fields, from art history and architecture to anthropology, provide students with an immersive experience and guide students in their exploration of this fascinating city. Students have the opportunity to visit many of Italy’s most revered cultural treasures and participate in rich cultural and intellectual exchange.

The state-of-the-art Notre Dame Rome global location on Via Ostilia, a stone’s throw from the Colosseum, serves as the home for lectures and discussions, while the city itself, with its rich assortment of monuments, museums, and densely-textured, storied neighborhoods serves as the students’ true classroom.

Students could be eligible to receive one transferable college credit upon completion of the program. The program is limited to 18 students who will be rising high school seniors by the time of the program.
