Hobart and William Smith Colleges, in collaboration with the Scuola Leonardo da Vinci and the Gustolab Institute, offer an interdisciplinary program in Rome each semester (beginning in Fall 2013) which utilizes the city as its classroom and studio. The curriculum for each program shifts each semester to reflect the areas of interest/expertise of the faculty director(s), enabling a wide range of students to experience Italy from a Roman perspective. In Spring 2013 the program will focus on architecture and contemporary art, with courses offered in English along with a course in Italian language. Students will participate in regular program-related activities and excursions in and around Rome, as well as multi-day excursions to Florence and Naples/Pompeii that will complement in-class instruction and provide students insight into Italian culture and society in a variety of contexts. Students reside in apartments located throughout Rome, enabling them to experience daily life as a resident of the city. Please note that this program is available ONLY to qualified students who are presently enrolled at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.
