TRULY DIVERSE

In reflection of this eclectic campus, our professors respect and draw from different points of view, ideas, and real-world experiences, enriching the dialogue within the classroom. 

LEARN ON LOCATION
Rome is our classroom. Professors frequently complement their lessons with on-site visits around the city, guiding students through the richly layered experience that is the Eternal City and highlighting its global context throughout the ages. 

Rome’s beauty quickly overtakes all who enter its ancient walls. A walk or bus ride through even the most commonplace quarters of the city yields encounters with innumerable monuments, towering pillars, and major imperial buildings that still stand imposingly just as they have for over 2,000 years!

STUDY ABROAD OPPORTUNITIES
For the majority of our students, Rome is already ‘studying abroad’. However, we believe that the opportunity to study in another institution & another country will broaden and deepen your educational experience. AUR offers study abroad options around the globe from Japan to Germany, Madrid to Cairo, and all stops in between.
