About This Program

Dolomit offers study abroad programs in the Italian Alpine province of Trentino, one of the most diverse and dynamic regions in Europe.

Our goal is to provide innovative programs that allow students to delve into pressing topics and develop professional skills, while engaging in a mutually beneficial exchange with the hosting community.

The curriculum focuses on sustainable practices in food production and environmental protection; heritage conservation and public use of the past; socially engaged design and creative practices. Interactive lectures and in-class activities are combined with meetings, visits and labs in the Italian Alpine area, Verona, and Venice. Assignments include individual and group projects that students plan and develop according to their interests and goals, under the supervision of our instructors.

Dolomit Summer School

Traveling to Italy this past summer was an amazing experience. The coordinators of Dolomit helped my friends and I plan several excursions that were separate from the summer school program which allowed us to see parts of the country we were really interested in. Rome, Florence, Venice and Verona were all places we were able to travel to thanks to the flexibility provided at Dolomit. The classes are held in the scenic city of Torbole and several trips to the nearby city of Trento are also included in the program. My personal favorite part of the trip was hiking in the Dolomites and staying overnight in a refugio. Great people and fantastic opportunities are what make Dolomit so incredible. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in studying in Italy!

Yes, I recommend this program
