A unique opportunity to earn credit for computer science abroad

This is your chance to make summer count for you – study abroad in Sicily where you will be able to earn credit without disrupting your home school schedule. You'll also gain invaluable experience that will drive your resume and also expand your personal world view. This innovative summer research program enables you to take computer science in a place that is filled with history, culture, art, scenic beauty and a refreshingly friendly, laid-back attitude to life.

As a student focused on computer science, you will actively engage in the development of computational applications used at archaeological dig sites in Sicily. Under the direction of an Arcadia Sicily Center faculty member, you will develop the applications and exhibit their practicality.

  • This program is six weeks long and combines research with real life applications on a beautiful island in the Mediterranean steeped in culture, traditions and historic significance.

  • Experience in-depth study abroad – something that is ideal preparation for undergraduates considering graduate research programs.

  • In addition to the research course (4 credits), you will also take an Italian language course. The full course proposal for the Digital Archaeology program is available upon request.
