Many different Internship Opportunities are availble to students enrolled in this program, based on their interests and linguistic preparaedness.
All Internships will take place within an Italian-only speaking environment, and students will not be "used" for their proficiency in English or in other languages, as occurs with many similar Internship opportunities offered by other programs or in more "touristy" cities.
