Enrich your Kenyon education with a semester in Italy! Kenyon College students have the opportunity to engage in a unique program based in Rome, with extended visits to Florence, Naples, Sicily, and other cultural centers in Italy. Housed in Accent International’s Rome Study Center in the beautiful Palazzo Santo Spirito, the Kenyon-Rome program offers students an exceptional opportunity to study Italian art and culture first hand, as well as take a studio art course, with at least as much time spent on site as in the classroom. Participate in this irreplaceable experience with the special advantages of Kenyon credit for courses and Kenyon educational quality.
Junior standing; and generally a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Students must be in good standing during the semesters preceding the Kenyon-Rome program. All students must take at least one art history course, preferably ARHS 110 or 111 before arriving in Rome. At least one semester of Italian language study is highly recommended. Open to students in all majors.
All Kenyon-Rome students pay Kenyon tuition, room and board to Kenyon. These fees cover program tuition, room, meal stipend, metro/bus pass and all co-curricular travel. Financial aid is applicable.
