About the Pantheon Institute

The Pantheon Institute offers study abroad programming for Architecture and Landscape Architecture that is firmly rooted in the American liberal arts tradition. Centrally located in the heart of Rome, our distinguished and dedicated faculty engage students through immersive learning, using Italy itself to explore the transformative power of structural design and urban planning.


Pantheon Institute is a leader in the worldwide conversation on architecture and design.  Our collaboration with the Accademia Adrianea and their itinerant Master’s program has lead to groundbreaking research publications, award-winning design competitions, and the highest levels of academic instruction, putting Pantheon Institute at the forefront of the conversation on how architecture and design shapes our world.

Pantheon Institute gains students entry to lectures with leading architects and designers, facilitates enrolment to internships with prominent Italian architecture firms and Roman museums, and grants students entry in the annual Premio Piranese, an international design competition where our students work alongside graduate level architects and other design professionals.
