All courses offered at the JFRC during its summer session carry three semester hours of credit unless specified otherwise.

A unique feature among the summer course offerings is the Fusion Experience.  Offered again in 2018 will be

Students selecting one of these Fusion Experiences will spend two-to-three weeks at the JFRC campus, then travel either to Sicily or the Abruzzo region for two-to-three weeks.  Students will be required to enroll in both classes associated with an experience. There will be no additional cost for either experience.

Benefits of a Fusion Experience:

  • These experiences fuse content from two different subject areas.  The two classes connected to each experience have been intentionally selected so that the courses complement each other. 
  • These experiences fuse theory with practice, as students will be applying what is learned in the classroom to out of the classroom, hands-on experiences.
  • These experiences fuse two different regions of Italy into one experience, e.g., Rome/Lazio with Abruzzo OR Rome/Lazio with Sicily, providing a comparative perspective.
