In partnership with “The American University of Rome”, our students can choose from a variety of undergraduate degrees. At the same time, they can be part of our professional soccer academy led by some of the best coaches in the sector. We are the only institution that offers this kind of opportunity in Italy, one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Our students get a fully accredited degree by the oldest American University in the Italian territory. In addition to that, each student-athlete can showcase his/her talent to Italian soccer clubs and improve as a player learning new aspects of the game.

Undergraduate education at The American University of Rome provides students with the tools they need to succeed in the 21st century. Critical thinking, problem solving, writing and intercultural communication are central to our undergraduate bachelor’s degree curriculum, and our students gain a firm grounding in these skills in our rigorous First Year Program for Freshmen (first year students), and they continue to develop these skills in our General Education program and majors.
Students can enroll in a total of 12-16 credits per semester and each class is taught in English by local and international faculty. Knowing Italian is not a requirement to be accepted in the program. However, you have the opportunity to take the AUR Italian courses to get yourself started with the language.
Juniors (third year students) can take full advantage of the numerous internship opportunities available through the AUR Career Services department. Recent internship placements have included:
Food & Agriculture Organization
Advicorp Investment Bank
Associated Press Bioversity
Context Travel Engiweb Security
English Yellow Page
Nato Defense College
In the Senior year (fourth year), students begin their capstone project, a year-long closing chapter to their undergraduate degree. Working closely with their faculty supervisor, the capstone integrates theory with practice and enables students to demonstrate their mastery of what they have learned in their program of study. Depending on the discipline, the capstone project may be a thesis, a research paper with a consultancy-style presentation, a production, a screenplay or a portfolio of work.
*A three-year option is possible: Advanced standing may be granted for academic credits earned at institutions outside the university system of the United States. Candidates in possession of credentials such as the Italian Maturità, the International Baccalaureate, the British GCE A-Levels and other equivalent programs will be evaluated and advanced credits granted on the basis of evaluation.
* Gap students, 18 years old and older, are also eligible for this program.
