Padua, Italy

BU’s four Padua programs take place in a lively town that’s home to one of the oldest universities in the world. Classes are taught at the BU Padua Academic Center, where students have the option to take an elective course or two in English or Italian. The Padua Internship Program, offered only in fall semesters and designed for those with beginning to advanced Italian language skills, provides students with the opportunity to develop their professional skills in one of Italy’s top economic and communications hubs.

No Italian language is required for this program. Students will enroll in one Italian language course at their level and choose two content courses from the variety offered at the Boston University Academic Center. Additionally, students will take the internship course which is comprised of an academic seminar and internship placement 15–20 hours a week for 12 weeks.
