The study abroad opportunity for the Spring 2015 semester brings students to Rome, Italy.

The trip goes from Feb. 3 to May 5 and offers courses in contemporary fiction, creative writing, art history and Italian.

“This can be a life changing experience,” said Carola Smith, senior director of international programs. “See the possibility and take advantage.”

Participants will live in student apartments in Rome.

The requirements to go on the trip are 12 completed units with an average grade point average of 2.5 and students must have completed the assessment test with English 110.

The cost is $8,625, plus a $200 refundable security deposit. If students need financial help they are urged to take a look at the Benjamin Gilman scholarship program.

Spaces are filling quickly. Applications can be picked up at the International Education Office Room one.

The deadline for applications is Oct. 24.
