Rome Program

Request Info

The University of Miami School of Architecture Rome Program, a satellite of the main campus, supports an experiential academic learning opportunity abroad for advanced architecture students.

Since its founding in 1991, the U-SoA sponsors optional fall and spring semester programs in Rome, Italy. The program, now approaching its 30th anniversary, brings together a select group of upper-level students and faculty for an intensive and immersive experience in design, theory, drawing and history of architecture. The courses are taught in-situ through classroom lectures, workshops, and guided walking tours. The curriculum, which includes eighteen credits, is delivered by expert faculty from the home campus and local Roman professionals. The coursework is enriched with field trips to different regions of Italy such as to Naples, Tuscany, Veneto, Umbria, Lombardy, Basilicata, Puglia, and Sicily. 

Since 2008, with the growing enrollment to the program, the U-SoA established its own Rome Center, in the prestigious Prati neighborhood, within minutes’ walk of St. Peter’s Basilica. The physical resources include studio spaces, library, and a lecture/review space.

Participation in the Rome Program for the undergraduates requires submission of a portfolio, a written essay, and a minimum GPA of 3.5. To provide this study abroad opportunity to an increasing number of students, the school has, in recent years, increased the number of scholarships awarded, Scholarships for the Rome Program are possible by the proceeds raised through the yearly U-SoA Golf Tournament. Scholarship eligibility is based on level of need.

A faculty director (Carmen L. Guerrero) and support staff manage administration of the program both on the ground in Rome and the home campus.

The Program remains one of the most popular study options for our students, and as those that have participated will attest, one of the most memorable events of their education.
