Catania, Italy Exchange Program

AU College of Liberal Arts has established a student exchange program with its counterpart at University of Catania, which is comprised of scholars from different disciplines such as Classics, Philology, History, Philosophy, Psychology, Arts, Literature, and Communication.  Founded in 1434 on the coast of Sicily, the University is also a leading Euro-Med Center created by the Department of Political Studies to develop research on Euro-Med relations, comparative politics, and international relations.  The University of Catania aims to offer students the possibility of growing from the human and scientific point of view.  It is meant as a laboratory in which the ancient knowledge of the Mediterranean culture meets the new technologies in order to receive an original and advanced training in a hospitable and generous city, which has been for centuries the meeting point of relations between the East and the West.
