Rome, Italy: Study + Internship
Spend a semester or academic year in the historic yet modern city of Rome, Italy, with AIFS!

Working side by side with locals is an ideal way to gain insight into another culture, to understand different approaches and to prepare for the realities of working in a multicultural and interdependent world. AIFS Abroad has designed the Study + Internship Program to combine a traditional academic learning experience with a unique opportunity to study working life in Italy first-hand with placements in Rome-based organizations. Internships are individually tailored to students, and we start with getting to know your strengths and your career goals.

Students select two courses of 3 credits each from the regular offering of courses on the Traditional Academic Program in addition to a 6-credit internship in their field of study for up to 12 credits. In a competitive world, practical experience is an invaluable addition to classroom learning. The internship provides vital insight into a career field, experience in the global workplace, practical exposure to the demands of specific jobs and development of professional and personal skills. International work experience helps students test a potential career path while exploring interests and abilities in new ways.
