Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Semester 3-6

Students who choose to study abroad in Rome with API at JCU take 1-2 courses and receive 3-6 credit hours per semester session, or approximately 3 credits per course. The program fee for one course includes a maximum of 3 credits per summer session. The program fee for two courses includes a maximum of 6 credits per summer session. Italian language courses are taught at all levels (beginning through advanced) and are taught in Italian. Most other courses are taught in English.

JCU offers both lower division and upper division courses. Course numbers are as follows: 100-299 freshman, sophomore or other introductory level courses; 300-399 junior or senior-level courses (requires background in the material); 400-499 seniors only. Course registration is conducted online prior to departure. Some courses will fill so it is advised to have 1-2 alternates pre-approved for each class. API recommends students obtain pre-approval from their home university for courses that they plan on taking abroad.

Not all courses are offered every session. The course selection may vary and no course is guaranteed. Some courses may require additional fees for books, labs, equipment, etc. These fees are not included in the program cost. Students are encouraged to make course selections from the online listings when completing the program application as course listings, descriptions, prerequisites and/or lab fees are subject to change.

CREATIVE WRITING OPTION (SUMMER 1)

Students who register for one creative writing course will be able to participate in JCU’s Institute for Creative Writing and Literary Translation. Offered during the Summer 1 term, this session features a large selection of creative writing workshops, readings, films, lectures, and concerts, as well as writing and translation contests, and more. Upon completion of the term, JCU will award a certificate to participating students.

As part of this program, students have access to special guest lectures, film screenings with Italian directors, and other extracurricular events. Upon completion of the term, JCU awards a certificate to participating students.
