Hand sketching a Roman building in a sketchbook. Cornell in Rome 

Since 1987, Cornell in Rome has offered a transformative experience for talented undergraduate artists, architecture students, and urbanists.

A world-class and specialized program, Cornell in Rome is focused on instruction in the disciplines of architecture design, history, and theory; visual arts; art history; urban studies; and Italian language, history, and culture.

Students benefit from an intimate environment and the opportunity to build interdisciplinary and lasting relationships with the faculty and each other. The maximum enrollment is 60 students each semester and faculty remain consistent for the entire semester.

Classes can generally be applied to Cornell graduation requirements and participation in the program does not necessarily require extra semesters of study or delay graduation. Interested Cornell students should speak with their college registrar to determine how classes will be applied toward degree requirements.
