Summer Program in Bologna
June 12-30, 2017
Application Deadline: March 15
This June, Johns Hopkins University is launching a new summer study abroad program in Bologna, Italy. This intensive three-week program, featuring two courses taught by Hopkins faculty, is an excellent opportunity for students to earn JHU credit and to explore Hopkins’ SAIS Europe campus along with one of Italy’s most beautiful and historic cities.
The Hopkins Summer Program in Bologna offers two concurrent interdisciplinary courses, AS.192.310 Populism in Comparative Perspective and AS.211.368 Italies: Politics, Culture, and Society. Students may choose to enroll in one or both of these courses.
AS.192.310 Populism in Comparative Perspective (INST-CP) will explore the history and recent resurgence of populist political movements across the globe. The course will be taught by Dr. Sahan Karatasli, Assistant Research Scientist and Lecturer in Sociology, and Dr. Stephen Morgan, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Education. AS.211.368 Italies: Politics, Culture, and Society (INST-GLOBAL) will be taught by Dr. Eugenio Refini, Assistant Professor of Italian Studies and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Italian Division in German & Romance Languages and Literatures, and will introduce students to the main features of Italian politics, culture, and society in political theory, the figurative arts, music, and film.
The Summer Program in Bologna is open to students from every undergraduate major at Hopkins including pre-majors. Enrollment is limited in order to ensure the highest quality of instruction. Lecture and discussion sessions are conducted in English, so no knowledge of Italian is required. Eligibility is based on good academic standing, intellectual interest, and personal maturity. Candidates must apply through the Office of Study Abroad with the following application. Deadline to apply: March 15.
The cost of the full program is $3,900, which covers tuition (six credits), housing, at least one excursion, and all group activities and events. The fee does not cover airfare. Scholarship funding may be available to students with demonstrated financial need.

The Hopkins Summer Program in Bologna is coordinated by the Office of Study Abroad and the International Studies Program, with the support of SAIS Europe and the Aronson Center for International Studies.
