The Music Program
For music majors who do not want to fall behind during a semester abroad, or for those with an interest in music, an exciting Music Program is available, taught in a multicultural environment in conjunction with Saint Louis College of Music, founded in 1976 and authorized to issue Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research. Students take up to 15 Richmond credits and may then take an additional music course.
As this program is taught by the Saint Louis College of Music, Richmond does not award the academic credit. Students receive a Saint Louis College of Music certificate authenticating work completed and should confirm the status of credit transfer for courses taken at Saint Louis with their home institution.
Music classes are taught in the evenings and do not conflict with the majority of the Richmond courses. Richmond students take their music classes in a truly international context, with Italian and other international students at Saint Louis College of Music, conveniently located in Monti neighborhood, just a short distance from the Richmond Center.
Instruction is in Italian, but all music instructors speak and understand the English language.
