Academic Programs at VLB
The Villa provides students with a unique experience that includes classes on site, a comprehensive academic program, intensive Italian language classes, and ample opportunity for the exploration of Italy.
While the Villa hosts a variety of programs and events to advance its mission of learning and scholarship, at the heart of this mission is undergraduate study. Every year, Georgetown welcomes close to one hundred undergraduate students to live and take classes at the Villa. Whether enrolled for an entire semester of coursework or for an intensive summer program, all students who study at the Villa benefit from and contribute to its vibrant intellectual and social community and its commitment to transformative global learning.
The Villa’s academic programming offers something for all undergraduates. Whether you wish to deepen your knowledge in Italian studies, approach other academic interests through the lens of a new discipline, or simply explore a new language and culture, the Villa’s curriculum offers a range of options. We invite you to learn more about the Villa and its unique advantages for undergraduate study abroad.
