Program Description

HOST UNIVERSITY

The Global Scholars Program in Rome is hosted by the American University of Rome (AUR). The American University of Rome is home to a highly diverse student body representing over forty countries on campus. A recently conducted language survey discovered 28 native languages among AUR's faculty and students - although all teaching is conducted in English! In reflection of this eclectic student body, AUR professors respect and draw from different points of view, ideas, and real-world experiences, enriching the dialogue within the classroom. Moreover, both faculty and students bring to the table a diversity in perspective that contributes and supplements the classroom experience.


COURSE OPTIONS

Students participating in the Global Scholars Program will receive transfer credit from their host university. Therefore, their GPA will not be affected by courses taken during students' semesters abroad on this program. As long as students receive a C or better in their classes abroad, transfer credit will be applied to the students' transcript. The Citadel Office of Study Abroad will take care of pre-approving all course offerings from AUR for the Global Scholars Program. A complete list off available courses will be attached to this application page once all courses have been approved by Citadel faculty members.
