Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

12-16 semester credits

This program is designed for students interested studying abroad in Rome who wish to select courses from a wide variety of disciplines with less emphasis on Italian language. All students must take at least one Italian language course per semester. Italian language courses are taught at all levels (beginning through advanced), while most other courses are taught in English.

LDM INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

API students have the opportunity to earn valuable credits through an internship experience with LdM in Rome! Students earn 3 credits for their internship placement, which is counted toward their total academic load for the semester, and which appears on the academic transcript along with a pass/fail notation. Students are assessed based on a weekly reports, a minimum of two papers, and an evaluation by their academic advisor/tutor at LdM. Options are listed on the API/LdM course schedules on the website, and will focus on placements in organizations engaged in socially meaningful tasks.

The Rome LdM Internship option provides Art History and Museum Studies students with the opportunity to participate in a Museum and Gallery Internship. Placements could include a museum, gallery, or church in Rome.

Students should indicate their interest in an internship upon application, and submit a résumé/C.V., essay, and portfolio (if applicable). The essay should discuss the student’s reason for applying, expectations about the placement, and a detailed description of the duties in which the student would like to partake in. An on-site interview is required of all internship participants. Placements are limited and cannot be guaranteed, so students are encouraged to apply early!”

TRANSCRIPTS

You will receive U.S.-transferable credits for courses taken at LdM from Marist College. Marist College is a four-year, fully accredited U.S. college in Poughkeepsie, New York.
