Welcome to URome 2013
URome, the newest of UM’s Semester-on-Location programs, launched successfully in the spring semester of 2012. Sponsored by the Department of Religious Studies and conducted in collaboration with the American University of Rome (AUR), URome provides students with a superb opportunity to study abroad in one of Europe’s oldest and most exciting cities. AUR’s campus is located on top of the Janiculum, Rome’s highest hill, offering a spectacular view of the city and ready access to Trastevere, one of Rome’s most vibrant districts. UM faculty will teach two three-credit courses; participants in the URome program must take one of these courses and may take both. In addition, students may take as many as four other courses that they select from AUR’s course offerings. With the exception of Italian language courses, all instruction is in English, and housing is in apartments arranged by AUR.
