Faculty-Led Programs


Cooperative Study Abroad Program Options (CSAP)

The Pantheon Institute offers a variety of opportunities for collaboration with US colleges and universities seeking to develop new academic programs initiatives and partnerships in Italy.

The Pantheon Institute is an experienced, quality institution of American higher education in Italy, with a dedicated faculty, an excellent academic program, supported by a prime location and facilities that include well-equipped classrooms, computer lab, library and cartographic research center. All this is managed by a dedicated administrative and student services team offering unparalleled services. If your institution is interested in developing a study abroad program in Italy, we encourage you to consider a cooperative venture with the Pantheon Institute where you choose the level and scope of the collaboration.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if your institution is interested in:

• Adopting the Pantheon Institute program as a pre-approved study abroad destination for students;

• Developing faculty-led programs in Italy with a local partner;

• Offering study abroad programs in Italy with a specific curricular focus;

• Collaborating with us for other educational initiatives.

We offer two Faculty-led program options:

1.  VISITING PROFESSOR OPTION

In our most popular option, the Pantheon Institute welcomes students along with a home-university professor who teaches a course or two at the Institute for a semester or summer session. The course(s) taught by the visiting professor(s) is adopted as part of the Institute’s offerings and open to all Pantheon students. This fully integrates the visiting school’s program into the Pantheon environment breaking the “traveling island with all students from the same school” syndrome.

Your students may take your class, and complete a full-time curriculum choosing from the offerings at the Pantheon Institute. All semester students must take Italian as part of the curriculum. And since the Pantheon Institute already has a full-service program including pick-up, housing, events and activities, emergency services, and more, developing an integrated faculty-led program in Italy has never been easier.

If you are a faculty member or administrator and would like to bring a group of students to Italy and teach a course or courses for yours and our students, we have the destination for you.

Under this option the professor is required to bring 10 or more students, and receives free housing for the semester, and a 10% discount from the published student fees.
