Course topics include volcanoes, food and heritage, and art history. You will also fulfill your GenEd World Languages and Culture requirement through this international experience—all while spending six weeks along the Italian coast discovering the depth of Italian culture.
All courses are taught by IU faculty, with a resident faculty director on-site for the entire program. No Italian language ability is required, as survival Italian courses are part of each week’s schedule. You’ll live in shared apartments in a building dedicated to IU students that is located in the medieval part of Salerno. Breakfast and dinner are included with the lodging expenses.
The program is largely a field-based course, with occasional in-class lectures. Excursions include visits to:
- Paestum Greek temples
- A mozzarella factory
- Campi Flegrei volcanos
- Naples, Amalfi, and Positano
- Roman lemon groves
- And more!
