Imagine waking up in Rome, walking the tree-lined streets of your Roman neighborhood, and climbing the steps to the top of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, where you catch a spectacular view of the city and the distant Colli Albani hills. In the afternoon, you catch the Metro and speed uptown to Piazza Bologna for your classes in a charming Roman palazzo. After class, you and your friends have dinner "al fresco" at your favorite local pizzeria and then take a leisurely walk along the River Tiber.
As a student at DeSales University, you have the unique opportunity to study abroad in Rome for the same cost as a semester at DeSales.
A select few students will also have the opportunity to participate in one of four internship spaces available within the Vatican: two spaces at the Pontifical Council for Peace and Justice, and two spaces at the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.
A DeSales University faculty member will be in residence in Rome during the semester and will teach courses in the program.
