For over twenty years, the University of Dallas has provided high school students with summer and study abroad opportunities modeled after its signature Rome program. These programs offer college credit and are held on our main campus in Irving, TX and sister campus in Rome, Italy, and are designed to show students the great and lasting pleasures that accompany a good educational experience.
Our summer programs reflect the core curriculum of the university, much of which is devoted to the careful reading of the great works in the tradition of western thought. All programs are led by university faculty through small-group discussions and tutorials while visiting relevant historical and cultural sites. The emphasis is on enabling students to not only read with greater insight but also become more polished writers and speakers, preparing them for success in college while forming the long-lasting friendships that inevitably develop in a learning community.
