While staying in nearby apartments, students can take up to five academic courses taught by local professors holding a Ph.D., Professionals in the field as well as professional instructors. In addition, students have the option of adding on a month-long academic internship. The courses are complemented by regular excursions into Rome or other areas of Italy. Students are encouraged to keep journals and to engage in ethnographic research projects.
