Rome - Film & Media Studies

Program Overview

Amsterdam students on bridge

Designed to take you inside Italian cinema, our Film & Media Studies Program makes Rome the set of your study abroad adventure. It’s here you will connect your passion to your studies while enrolling in courses that allow you to create your own documentary, explore the ethics of storytelling, and more. An Italian language course rounds out your film studies focus. You also have the opportunity to take Italian- or English-taught courses in the Humanities, Religious Studies, and Social Sciences at the prestigious Università degli Studi Roma Tre, the second largest university in Rome. Customize your curriculum with courses from our other programs in Rome.

Why Rome?

There’s no place like Rome. With its abundant architectural and artistic riches, Rome celebrates more than 2,500 years of history. Think about it: you will be enveloped in the Roman past—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Basilica—while enjoying all of the modern-day cultural jewels that the city has to offer. Why wait a minute longer? Indulge in Rome’s splendor—and did we mention the food?—as soon as possible.
