LdM Rome Academic Highlights
LdM Rome students can choose courses in subjects such as history and classical civilizations, art and literature, international business, political science, film studies, philosophy and religion, and Italian language. Rome's economic and political heart focuses largely on the exciting worlds of international relations and business, media and communications, and art and fashion. This gives LdM students the opportunity to experience up close the unique charm of modern lifestyle in a millenary capital city.
About RomeWith its unparalleled history, Rome, the Eternal City and Italy's capital, functions as both an ancient and modern global center. The city fuses the feel of a large metropolis with small lively neighborhoods and picturesque districts dotted with hills, piazzas, fountains, cobblestone streets and churches. The unique history and resources of Italy’s capital make it a meaningful city in which to study both ancient cultures and contemporary political and international issues. Rome has captivated pilgrims and tourists for centuries, and students will immediately find inspiration in the city's parks, evocative ruins and Renaissance and Baroque palaces.
