The Core in Rome

Most of our students spend a semester abroad studying Western Civilization at UD's Due Santi campus just south of Rome, Italy. It's where UD's Core curriculum comes together.

Donald Cowan“ To be a student of the Western World to seek one's heritage in the liberal arts is to follow the path to Rome. ”- Donald B. Cowan, UD President (1962-77)

Coloseum

This program is unlike most study-abroad programs; it offers students an opportunity to experience firsthand the roots of our culture. While in Rome, students take Western Civilization I, Art and Architecture of Rome, Western Theological Tradition, The Human Person, and Literary Tradition III.

Students read about Julius Caesar and Agamemnon one day and find themselves immersed in the actual places of these histories and myths the next. They travel across seas and landscapes where major battles were decided; they recite Greek tragedies in the theaters where they were originally performed; they come face to face with works of art and architecture that have inspired humankind for centuries; and they visit some of the holiest shrines and most beautiful monuments of the Roman Catholic Church.
