Overlooking the historical centre of Rome, The American University of Rome is a traditional American college located on top of the Eternal City’s highest hill, offering a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding hills.
The defining aspects of the programs taught at AUR are:
- All programs combine theoretical understanding with practical experience, and classes are often taught on-site throughout Rome and Italy.
- Abundant opportunities to gain real-world work experience through internships with national and international commercial companies and NGOs. Over 75% of our students will undertake an internship; many will take two.
- AUR has a relatively small student body of just over 500 undergraduate and postgraduate students. Classes have a low student to staff ratio, creating an intimate learning environment and engendering in-depth discussions in the classroom.
- Since 1969, The American University of Rome has provided an American liberal arts education to students from all over the world seeking a unique and extraordinary educational experience. It is the oldest American degree-granting institution in Rome, Italy, and currently offers 10 Bachelor (B.A.) degrees and 3 Master (M.A.) degrees. All programs are taught in English.
