CUA Rome with Loyola
From the wonders of Ancient Rome to the sweet buzzing of contemporary Roman society, the "Eternal City" is rich in history and culture unlike anywhere else in the world. The CUA Rome Flagship program offers students an introduction to the vibrant existence of the Italian capital and its role in the development of Western civilization. Students have the opportunity to experience and participate in the past, present, and perhaps future of one of humanity's greatest millennial cities.
Academics & Curriculum
This liberal-arts intensive program focuses on the history and culture of Rome. The curriculum includes one required Italian language course. Participants should expect to study the city in depth from the perspective of different disciplines as site visits are an essential component of most courses. Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate in cultural field trips, which have in the past included seeing an Opera, visiting a buffalo mozzarella farm, and attending a Papal Mass. Overnight educational excursions may be offered for an additional fee; destinations vary by semester.

Accommodation & Meals
A homestay experience is the ideal choice for students wishing to immerse themselves in Italian culture and language. Students with host families often express a great sense of fulfillment. These students enjoy sharing family meals in the evening, seeing local neighborhoods, learning authentic cooking styles, and speaking more Italian.
