The American University of Rome Stats, Info and Facts

The Right University for an International Education

The American University of Rome is committed to excellence in education: AUR prepares students to live and work across cultures as skilled and knowledgeable citizens of an interconnected and ever-changing world through its practical interdisciplinary academic majors, opportunities for learning through travel and internships, and its multi-cultural student body, faculty, and staff. It is the perfect combination of the best of two worlds: the excellent academic attributes of higher education in the U.S. through American practical know-how, technological capability and career preparation, with the European and Italian classical tradition of the humanities and liberal arts.

We Are an International Community

The American University of Rome is home to a highly diverse student body of roughly 500 students representing over forty countries. In reflection of this eclectic student body, our professors respect and draw from different points of view, ideas, and real-world experiences, enriching the dialogue within the classroom. Moreover, both faculty and students bring to the table a diversity in perspective that contributes and supplements the basis for learning.

Rome Is Our Classroom

Rome constantly conjures up vivid reminders of its glorious past as the city that built the greatest empire the world has ever known. With its sunny climate, stately umbrella pines, and an unparalleled wealth of history around every corner, Rome's beauty quickly overtakes all who enter its ancient walls. A walk or bus ride through even the most commonplace quarters of the city yields encounters with innumerable monuments, towering pillars, and major imperial buildings that still stand imposingly just as they have for over 2,000 years! Our professors frequently complement their lessons with on-site visits around the city, using Rome as a classroom and guiding student through the richly layered experience that is Rome, and highlighting its global context throughout the ages.

Resourceful, Exciting, and Unique Degree Programs

The American University of Rome is the ideal place to take your Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religious Studies or in Archeology and Classics (with supplemental Cultural Heritage or Screen Media) or in Art History (with supplemental Art Business). AUR is proud to house Italy's first, broadest, and best-established American Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Italy's only American Bachelor of Arts Degrees in both Fine Arts and Film and Digital Media. Other areas of study include well-established Bachelor of Arts degrees in Interdisciplinary Studies, International Relations and Global Politics, and Italian Studies, and an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Studies. Our Bachelor of Science in Business Administration can be taken with concentrations in Finance, Management, Marketing, Social Marketing, or The Business of Art. Furthermore, AUR also offers an Associate of Applied Arts in International Business.
