Student Testimonials:

" I chose AUR because of its challenging curriculum in Italian Studies. I decided on this major as I have always loved the language and culture of this boot-shaped peninsula. I have embraced the opportunity at AUR to befriend students and faculty from all over the world. Our multi-lingual community has furthered my understanding of Italy and the world. The international faculty and staff are always willing to spend time to help students."
- Edgar, USA.

"AUR has prepared me for my masters in Cultural Heritage Studies at University College London by giving me a hands-on approach to the study of art history and archeology in a modern day context. A wonderful excursion to Ghana, where I did archeological excavations and ethnographic fieldwork, provided me with contemporary and theoretical perspectives in archeology."
