"History, Media, and Cultural Heritage" is an engaging, innovative semester program based in Rome, Italy that offers students a broad choice of full-immersion courses centered on the Eternal City, with topics ranging from social media and film to languages, history, and art history.
Founded on AIRC's five years of semester programming in classics, archaeology, and Mediterranean culture, eight years of excavation and conservation work, and unique partnerships with the Italian Ministry of Cutlural Heritage and foreign academies in Rome, the program has students analyze and interact with the city's complex sustainability through lectures and visits, travel, and hands-on activities. Students tackle real projects and real issues. As a direct result of the program, students acquire new skill sets and insights into Rome's history and relevance in the world, as well as continually evolving Italian society.
The program is open to students of all disciplines but is geared specifically to students of archaeology, art history, classics, communications, environmental sciences/studies, film, journalism, history, media, museum studies, social media, sustainability, and urban studies. Previous AIRC semester programs have hosted students from Brown University, California Polytechnic State University, Davidson College, the College of the Holy Cross, Northeastern University, Trinity University, the University of Southern California, and the University of Texas at Austin.
