Semester Program

ACTIVE LEARNING IN THE ITALIAN ALPS

Sustainability, Heritage and Creativity

 

Dolomit is launching a new semester program in Trentino to offer students the opportunity to discover Trentino and Northern Italy.

The core curriculum revolves around three active learning courses that explore the interdisciplinary topics of sustainability, heritage and creativity. Participants are introduced to the most up-to-date approaches to the study of these fields and use the region – Trentino and Northern Italy at large – as a laboratory to gain first-hand experience. Meetings with experts, site visits and direct participation in innovative projects are an integral part of our offerings. An Italian class allows participants to gain a basic knowledge of the language and better understand the culture of their hosting community.

Trento, the capital city of the province, is our students’ home for the duration of the program. A top-rated international university, excellent public transportation and a variety of options for leisure and entertainment make Trento the ideal location to study, explore and enjoy Italy and Europe.

Educational excursions to the Dolomites mountain range, Lake Garda, Verona and Venice are included in the curriculum.

Students are hosted by local families, which provide an excellent opportunity for cultural immersion and exchange, or in student apartments.

starting in Fall 2019 – stay tuned!
