Italian Language Skills for Graduate Studies

AUR offers M.A. students an optional extracurricular 30-hour introductory course in Italian Language Skills for Graduate Studies. The course will meet five hours a week (divided into three weekly sessions) over the first six weeks of the semester to best fit in with the academic demands and schedules of all the M.A. programs, and it will be recorded as pass/fail on student transcripts. The course fee is 500 US Dollars or 400 Euros. (A minimum enrollment of 10 students must be met in order for the course to run; maximum capacity: 16.)

The M.A. Peace Studies: Religions in times of conflict program offers an interdisciplinary and methodologically diverse study of culture and religion in their political and social dimensions. The research and study of particular religious traditions, social and political context in which they evolved, and the political ideas they influenced, contribute to the promotion of peace, religious and cultural diversity, cross-cultural dialogue, understanding and cooperation.

The M.A. in Peace Studies utilizes the unique location of The American University of Rome to provide students the opportunity to study the development of religious institutions, their teachings and practices, in connection with the ever changing social context.
