Rome Open Campus
CIEE Global Institute – Rome: Open Campus Program
We’re pleased to offer semester pricing for open campus programs starting at $11,850. CIEE is committed to preparing global citizens for today’s workforce and tackling the barriers that prevent students from studying abroad. Providing affordable programs is key to these efforts, and supports our pledge to Generation Study Abroad™.
Customize the study abroad experience to your interests, aspirations, and degree requirements: Pair two or three six-week blocks for your perfect amount of intensive study and cultural engagement, select your academic track from five options, then choose your electives from a range of courses and subject areas. Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to learn how to make fresh pasta, have aperitivos with Italian friends, volunteer at a hospital or school, visit the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums, and much more.

Each CIEE course includes 45 contact hours for a recommended 3 semester/4.5 quarter hours. Enriching academic study tours, excursions, and other special activities are designed around each academic track. It all adds up to a uniquely flexible, immersive, and challenging academic experience.

Choose from the following academic tracks:
  • Business
  • Communications, Journalism, and New Media
  • Health Sciences
  • International Relations and Political Science
  • Literature and Culture

Enhance your academic program with:
  • Internships
  • Directed Independent Research
  • Service-Learning Projects

The block system provides maximum flexibility for U.S. students, including students from schools that operate on quarter or trimester systems. While most students will choose three consecutive blocks for a total of 18 weeks of study, students can opt for two consecutive blocks for a total of 12 weeks of study. In the later case, students complete four courses for a recommended 12 semester / 18 quarter hours.

This approach allows CIEE Rome Open Campus students to select all of their courses from the wide range of CIEE offerings or choose a combination of CIEE courses and courses at one of our Rome partner-universities, where they can learn alongside Italian students.
