Italian Abroad

Bard College offers a number of study abroad opportunities for students. While some programs have a strong focus on basic language acquisition coupled with an intensive program abroad, other programs allow exploration in advanced liberal arts courses through affiliated or independent institutions.

Every Spring, the Italian Department offers an Intensive Language course (8 credits): students can subsequently spend one month in June at the Babilonia Italian Language School in Taormina, Sicily. At Babilonia, students can take classes of Italian language and culture while viewing the astonishing beauty of the Sicilian landscape, tasting the finest Italian food, sunbathing on the wonderful seaside or enjoying live music and theatre in the evocative Ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina.
