There are two required courses: one four-credit course in Italian Language, based on your proficiency, and one three-credit core course. You then have the opportunity to choose two or three elective courses.

Arcadia in Rome offers a Business concentration within their Rome center. Arcadia also pairs with Università delgi Studi Roma Tre for an opportunity for students to partake in courses at their institution, including the opportunity to take an Engineering concentration.

  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
  • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.
