Fresno State to provide credit for Rome study program

Fresno State's Division of Continuing and Global Education will give students nationwide academic credit when they participate in a program to study abroad in Rome.
Formerly arranging credit from their own college or university, students signed up with the American Institute for Roman Culture will now be able to transfer their credit from Fresno State when they take the one- to eight-week trip to learn the history and culture of Rome as they pursue their degrees.
According to Russell Statham, manager of Administration and Global Operation for the Division of Continuing and Global Education, the partnership will elevate Fresno State's visibility among higher education institutions throughout the country.
"Students from Brown University, Northeastern University, the University of Southern California, the University of Texas at Austin, and many other institutions have participated in AIRC's programs in the past," said Statham in a release. "Now, all students who complete AIRC's programs in Rome will receive from Fresno State for their study abroad experience."
About 50 students are participating in AIRC's resident programs in Rome this year beginning with the summer 2013 term.
The trips provide facilities and housing for students taking courses in history, Latin, excavation and conservation, journalism/communications, archaeology, video production and social/digital media.
Students enrolled in the Institute's programs also have access to studio and classroom spaces in nearby venues, including foreign institutes and private palaces.
Applications can be downloaded and submitted through AIRC's website at romanculture.org.
