Duke University : Global Education for Undergraduates


May 15 - June 24, 2017

The Department of Romance Studies is offering a six-week, two course summer program in cooperation with the University of Bologna. The goal of this program is:

  1. To offer students the opportunity to improve their Italian language skills at the world’s first University through an intermediate language course;
  2. To introduce students to more advanced topics in Italian studies through a culture-based course taught in English;  
  3. To develop students’ cultural knowledge by using the stay in Bologna to introduce them to the richness of Italian art and literature, the complexity of its political past and present, and the variety of its culture, from local traditions to regional gastronomy.
  4. To enhance students' intercultural awareness through interaction with Italians and observation and guided reflection on the immersive experience.
