    The Brown Experiential Education Program in Rome, in affiliation with the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (the Centro), explores Roman life and culture through a wide range of disciplines – archeology, history, literature, language, and the arts.

    Areas of Focus include:

    • Italian language
    • Roman history and culture
    • Roman topography

    Students in the Rome program enroll in two courses:

    1. Immersive Italian
    2. Making of an Eternal City

    Located in the quaint Monteverde Vecchio neighborhood, the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (the Centro) is the academic and residential center of the program. The Centro is situated on one of the main streets of the Janiculum, near shops and cafés, and only minutes from the Piazza Venezia, Vatican City, and downtown Rome.

    The Centro houses classrooms, a library, a dining room, a kitchen and residential rooms. Students reside in shared double rooms with communal bathrooms. Amenities include: air-conditioned classrooms, linens (sheets, pillow, blanket, towels), laundry room, and Wi-Fi throughout the building.

    During the week, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the dining hall at the students’ residence. On the weekend trip, students reside in a hotel with their Residential Assistants and the On-Site Director. Breakfast will be at the hotel. Lunch and dinners will be at local eateries.
