The Department of French and Italian is pleased to announce the Full Immersion Rome Experience (FIRE). Beginning in Summer 2017, students will have the opportunity to spend ten weeks in Rome, fully immersed in Italian language (Italian 1 and Italian 2) and culture (Italian 4). The immersion experience will include visits to significant Roman monuments such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum, St. Peters and Vatican Museums, and the Borghese Gallery, as well as other towns and cities of Italy, and to participate in co-curricular activities such as visits to piazzas and markets, trips to the opera and sporting events, and more. Participants are housed in student apartments in the lively and charming neighborhood of Trastevere. The program will be directed by a Dartmouth faculty member in Italian.
In the FIRE program, students will have the opportunity to experience Rome at its best and the diverse cultural and natural wonders in other areas of Italy, as well. And by participating in the program, students will complete two-thirds of the Dartmouth language requirement!
