The Summer Rome Program seeks to enlighten students to the ideas that shaped the history of Europe, the Church, and modernity as a whole.
The University offers a summer Rome program for both UD and non-UD undergraduate students. The program is designed as an attractive alternative and/or supplement to the fall and spring semester programs, or as an opportunity for undergraduates from other institutions to experience the university's signature Rome Program. Like our semester program, students will be housed on the Eugene Constantin Rome campus at Due Santi. The program offers a further choice for transfer students, older students or those whose schedule will not accommodate a full semester abroad.
The 2014 Summer Rome Program will offer two tracks of six hours of credit each. Those enrolled in the liberal arts track will choose two courses from the following three-credit options:
Theology 2311, Western Theological Tradition; Theology 4V57, God, the Lover and the City: Explorations in Catholic Faith and Culture; and English 3357, Shakespeare's Rome.
The Italian track is intensive second-year Italian 1 and 2 or its equivalent, open to students who have successfully completed one year of college Italian.
Students will register for six hours either in the liberal arts track or in the Italian track.
Unlike most study abroad programs, your classroom is Rome and the other cities and sites you will visit. Faculty-led day and overnight trips are scheduled throughout the program. Students will visit Albano, Assisi, Castel Gandolfo, Florence, Fossanova, Monte Cassino, Nemi, Ostia Antica and Subiaco.
The Liberal Arts Track will run May 29 - July 2, 2014.
The Italian track will run May 29 - July 8, 2014.
Cost for both programs is $6,000. The price includes tuition, all fees, room and board on campus, and land travel on faculty-led day and overnight tours in Rome and Italy. The program cost will not include overseas airfare, airport transfer and independent travel.
Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. Please visit the Application Process page for information on how to apply.
University professors who have lived in Italy and taught for the University of Dallas Rome Program are assisted by staff members who have had experience working with the University of Dallas' study abroad programs. All members of the staff are selected with an eye on the importance of eliminating the inefficiencies of traveling in a foreign country while also promoting a serious intellectual community.
No noisy city setting here. The University's ten-acre Eugene Constantin Campus rests in the beautiful foothills just off the Via Appia southeast of Rome, where ancient Rome got its start and where Romans and popes take their summer rest. Take a walk in the kiwi grove, kick around a soccer ball, eat fresh Italian food in our mensa, take a dip in the pool, work out in the exercise room, or just sit in the pergola above the working vineyard. You'll find it come paradiso-like paradise-on the grounds of this beautiful former villa.
