Academic Semester and Academic Year

The Academic Semester and Academic Year Programs at LdM give students the flexibility to choose from over 500 courses from seven academic areas:

School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences
School of Creative Arts
School of Design
School of Nutrition, Italian Gastronomy and Culture
School of Sciences
School of Agriculture
School of Italian Language and Culture

Academic Semester and Academic Year Programs allow undergraduate and independent students to gain a deeper understanding in their fields of study within a global context. The Program is open to qualified US and international students.

Students can customize their courses according to their academic needs and personal interests, for example, they can combine more than one city in their Academic Year abroad by studying in the fall at one LdM campus and in another for the spring semester. Many courses and extracurricular activities are seasonal and selecting this option allows students to get the most from their educational experience abroad.

Internships are also available to all those students who want to earn academic credits, while gaining a valuable professional experience in an Italian business environment.

All courses are taught in English except for Italian Language and Culture courses. Attendance is mandatory.

For the Academic Year 2021-2022, Italian Language and Culture courses are optional, although encouraged to gain a fuller understanding of the experience in Italy, for all the terms and programs. Students enrolling in an ITL/ITC course during the 2021-2022 Academic Year will benefit from the LdM La Dolce Vita grant.
