LdM Rome STEM Program

SPRING 2018

The LdM Rome STEM Program offers STEM and related majors a unique educational opportunity – rigorous science courses taught in collaboration with Università Roma Tre, offering state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.

The core of the LdM Rome STEM Program is a required course on Italy’s Contribution to Modern Science. For centuries, Italian researchers have advanced the sciences, often affecting paradigm shifts. By examining important scientists from the Renaissance to the present, students explore the development of scientific thinking, its cultural contexts and its public role. Rome offers the perfect setting for this integrated exploration of the sciences and their histories.

Students combine this core course with a selection of varied STEM-area courses. In Spring 2018, STEM courses will be offered in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, and mathematics. In addition, students may choose general education courses in a variety of fields including art history, business, ancient studies, communications, Italian language, literature, philosophy and religious studies, political science and international studies, and psychology.

Students participating in the LdM Rome STEM Program are required to have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA. Specific STEM attendance and grading policies apply. Any student taking a science course in Rome during the semester belongs to the STEM Program. The core course and the STEM courses cannot be changed, dropped or withdrawn from. Italian language study is encouraged but no language courses are required. To help ensure a successful experience, we recommend that students take no more than two science courses with a lab component.
