We Are an International Community
The American University of Rome is home to a highly diverse student body of roughly 500 students representing over forty countries. In reflection of this eclectic student body, our professors respect and draw from different points of view, ideas, and real-world experiences, enriching the dialogue within the classroom. Moreover, both faculty and students bring to the table a diversity in perspective that contributes and supplements the basis for learning.
Rome Is Our Classroom
Rome constantly conjures up vivid reminders of its glorious past as the city that built the greatest empire the world has ever known. With its sunny climate, stately umbrella pines, and an unparalleled wealth of history around every corner, Rome's beauty quickly overtakes all who enter its ancient walls. A walk or bus ride through even the most commonplace quarters of the city yields encounters with innumerable monuments, towering pillars, and major imperial buildings that still stand imposingly just as they have for over 2,000 years! Our professors frequently complement their lessons with on-site visits around the city, using Rome as a classroom and guiding student through the richly layered experience that is Rome, and highlighting its global context throughout the ages.

Memorable Excursions
Studying at The American University of Rome gives students the chance to travel across the US, Italy, Europe, and Africa, to vibrant destinations such as Boston, Pompeii, Vienna, and various cities and towns throughout Ghana. Several academic departments offer exciting and challenging credit course excursions. The most recent example being Kosovo in March 2013, led by the International Relations Department. In 2012, our Model United Nations team traveled to New York as part of our annual participation in the Model United Nations Conference.
