Weekend Travel & Adventures

During the middle three weeks of the program, you will have three-day weekends to explore Rome or adventure outside of your program city. The GO Rome staff will hold office hours throughout the program to support students and plan safe, exciting weekend excursions. You can take advantage of our expertise to plan your weekend in one of our favorite cities like Florence, Venice, Cinque Terre or the Amalfi Coast. No matter how you decide to spend your weekends, we will support you with our expert advice and ensure you find your travel squad.

Academic Courses

Classes meet Monday-Thursday most weeks which will provide you the opportunity to travel and explore your surroundings on your 3-day weekends. GO Rome courses are available in culture, business, communications and art history. Students will enroll in two classes for six hours of credit or one class for three hours of credit if combined with the PRO track micro-internship experience. Our experienced faculty work year-round to develop engaging and relevant courses. They incorporate local culture into the classroom whether it is through cultural sites and museum visits, readings by Italian authors or providing local context to the topics discussed. Due to our smaller class sizes, it’s easy to engage with the class material and your fellow students as you learn about your area of study. And, the slightly shorter calendar and less class days during the program, GO Rome students will have pre-program assignments to complete.

Community Building & Engagement

Our engagement model is the reason the GO programs are different from other study abroad programs. Our team consists of a program director, faculty members and peer leaders who will support you and create fun and unique opportunities to connect with your program group. In past summers, we have hosted a variety of optional activities from cooking classes to perfect our favorite Italian dishes to gelato tastings. Students have told us they’ve connected with new best friends and future bridesmaids during these optional activities designed to bring the program together!

Professional Experience Option

In addition to an enriching academic experience, GO Rome students have the opportunity to enhance their professional development skills and gain valuable, real-world experience through our innovative partnership with Nexgen Careers. Instead of taking two courses on the program, you take one class and in place of your second course, you will participate in the professional development program focusing on career design and real-world consulting projects for international organizations. Combine the best of both worlds with challenging academics and resume-building professional experience on GO Rome!
