Project Description

Programs for American Universities

We have been accredited by American Universities since 1985. Students can participate in our italian language and culture courses or in specifically designed courses arranged by request through their home universities. Our courses provide academic credits transferable to the student’s home university. At the end of their study program, students receive final letter grades and an official transcript. We offer organizational support to American University professors to help facilitate and carry out study programs in Rome. Here are some American Colleges and Universities that have chosen Italiaidea for their study abroad programs.
