Teaching Assistantships in Lombardy, Italy: The SITE Program

  • Thanks to a special formal arrangement with the government of the region of Lombardy, Italy, Boston College is pleased to be able to send each year one student to work as English-language assistant in the schools of the towns and cities of the region (excluding Milan). The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students who apply must first secure nomination from the Italian section of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
  • Assistants are paid a stipend (though not one sufficient to meet all expenses of one's stay in Italy). The assistantship can last anywhere from three months to a full (Italian) academic year (from October through May). Applications are usually available by late March.

For further information and to apply to the program, email Professor Franco Mormando.

University Resources

  • The Murray Graduate Center
    The Murray Graduate Student Center (MGC) was established in 1997 to provide a facility dedicated to graduate students in their pursuit of academic excellence at Boston College. One of only a handful of graduate student centers around the country, the Murray Center produces a number of programs for graduate students, offers a number of services and amenities and provides academic, social, computer, student organization and casual meeting space and opportunities.
  • The Versatile Ph.D.
  • The Apprenticeship in College Teaching
    Graduate students in Romance Languages and Literatures are invited to participate in BC’s new Apprenticeship in College Teaching Program. The program coordinates and formalizes efforts that have long been under way in departments and in the university to prepare graduate students for teaching at Boston College and in their future careers. By combining these efforts, the Apprenticeship Program provides graduate students with a framework within which they can deliberately plan their development as teaching scholars. Students who complete the program will receive a letter from the Office of the Provost for inclusion in their teaching portfolios.
