Through our new semester-long program, you live, learn, and travel with fellow students and Saint Anselm faculty on our (other) Hilltop, in Orvieto, Italy. The program will be offered every spring semester starting with the pilot in spring 2016. The program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors and applications are due by October 15 each year.
While studying in Orvieto you will continue to take four courses as you do in New Hampshire but the courses will integrate local cultural events and landmarks through academic excursions as much as possible. You can expect academic excursions to cities such as Rome, Florence, Monte Cassino, Assisi, Siena, Pompeii and other heritage sites where you'll experience the cultural energy and history of Italy.
Orvieto is conveniently located in Italy's Umbria region, Orvieto is one hour from Rome and one and half hours from Florence by train. This program not only includes academic excursions but also a week-long spring break to allow you to travel and explore further afield.
