Study Abroad in Rome

The Modern Languages Department at Seton Hall offers a summer study program of four weeks in Rome, the political and cultural capital of Italy.

Courses and Credits

Students will receive six credits towards graduation, which will count toward an Italian major and minor. They will take two courses: a language class (at the student's appropriate level) taught by a professor of Italiaidea, a renowned language school of Rome accredited with several American Universities; and a course on Italian culture, ITAL 2701 taught by Dr. Gabriella Romani.


ITAL 1002 Elementary Italian II.


Students will stay with Italian families. The selected families live in areas located only a few metro or bus stops from the school.


There will be visits to many historical sites of the city, such as the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Galleria Borghese, and a guided Tour of the Vatican Museum and Basilica. In addition, there will be a weekend excursion to the magical city of Venice.

The Cost

The price includes fees for one course with the local school, scheduled travel to Italy, excursion to Venice, accommodation in Rome (inclusive of breakfast from Monday to Friday and dinner from Monday to Thursday), and an orientation session upon arrival. It does not, however, include textbooks or food.


Three travel scholarships (ranging $500-2000) are made available by the Italian Studies Program.
