Study Abroad & Job Opportunities
During the Academic Year in
Bologna, Italy. The city of Bologna, located in northern Italy, has its own
distinct medieval beauty. Centered at the crossroads of Italy, this city of
approximately half-a-million people is home to one of the oldest universities
in the world. It is just a train ride away from the art of Florence, the
fashionable streets of Milan and the historic city of Venice. Bologna,
designated an official European "city of culture" in 2000, is also a
major center for trade fairs, where businesses and industries showcase everything
from the latest developments in technology to the newest cars, perfumes and
books. While providing many varied opportunities for internships, Bologna's
current contributions to the modern capitalist economy contrast with the city's
historically socialist identity. The Bologna Program was first offered in 1965
and is Dickinson's oldest program. Eight seniors and eight juniors studied in
the first program and sailed to Italy on the S.S. Castel Felice. As of 2008,
the program had more than 1,000 alumni.

Italy. The program will provide students with the opportunity to begin or
continue their Italian language studies while immersed in the rich cultural and
historical city of Genoa, Italy. Three levels of Italian language
coursework will be offered, equivalent to ITAL 101, 116, or 232. Each course
will have a common cultural component focusing on Genoa and its territory,
taught by Professor Tullio Pagano. This portion of the course will be
taught in English, but intermediate and advanced students will be assigned
additional readings in Italian.
