    The International Programme in Humanities (IPH) is a one-year programme taught exclusively in English.

    It is also the first year of a three-year Bachelor’s Degree Programme in:

    • either History
    • or Cultural Heritage Studies
    • or Science of Communication and Performing Arts.

    Students will experience a full immersion into Italian language and culture, which will then prepare them to study years 2 and 3 mainly in Italian.

    During the IPH students will develop their knowledge in various subject areas by a[ending a range o f classes, visiBng historical sites in central Italy, discovering local culture and meeBng other students and people from all over the world. 

    The programme consists of contact  with our professors (lectures and seminars), study outside of lessons and various site visits over the course of two academic terms. Each term lasts 12 weeks. Students enrolled in the programme will obtain 30 ECTS credits per term.  

    Students must obtain 30 ECTS credits for each term: 24 ECTS credits are obtained from attending lessons taught in English (and passing the respective exams) and 6 ECTS credits are obtained from attending an Italian language course at the University Language Centre, CLI (and passing the final exam).

    Those who pass all exams from the two terms will receive 60 ECTS credits. This will be recognised as equal to the first year of one of the four Italian degree programmes previously mentioned.
