Since 1970, when Saint Mary's College opened its campus in the heart of Rome, hundreds of students have studied and experienced Italian culture in this vibrant city. A year or semester in Rome provides a life-changing experience that makes a significant impact on students' intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth.
Designed primarily for sophomores, the Rome Program meets the traditional requirements for course work in the humanities, arts, and social sciences. Juniors and seniors who can adapt the program to their own academic sequence may also participate. General education courses are taught in English. They include art history, classical archaeology, monument drawing, music history and appreciation, mythology, literature, history, international business, journalism, political science, philosophy, and religious studies. Students are required to continue their study of the Italian language. Italian majors and minors can take advanced courses in Italian language and literature.
The program is open to undergraduates from all accredited institutions. Eligibility is based on academic record, personal recommendations, and the assurance of readiness for living and studying overseas. It is strongly recommended that interested students complete a year of college level introductory Italian or its equivalent. To be eligible for consideration, the student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 on the 4.0 system.
