Independently Teaching in Rome

Teaching at the Pantheon Institute

Does the idea of teaching in Rome sound appealing? Do you cherish the thought of taking your students to see the ruins of the forum, the Colosseum and the Vatican. The Pantheon Institute offers a world of opportunity faculty, starting with the chance to teach in one of the world’s most historically and culturally rich cities.

The Institute offers courses in art history, international business and economics, Italian studies, literature, history, political science, psychology, visual arts, writing, and other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Whenever possible, the material learned in class is supplemented by on-site study in Rome and other local destinations.


Adjunct Positions & Course Proposals

The Pantheon Institute is continually seeking to diversify its curriculum and offer new and exciting courses. We welcome requests for teaching positions from qualified instructors, and applicants are encouraged to submit new course proposals they feel would enrich and enhance the curriculum. Professors from US colleges and universities on sabbatical, extended leave, or those interested in teaching a course at the Pantheon Institute with students from their home institution are encouraged to apply, as well as qualified instructors in or near Rome.
