In partnership with the Dominican Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum), students can study in Rome for one academic semester, either fall or spring. Up to three courses may be taken during the term and applied to the degree program as electives.
As prerequisites for the Rome semester, students must complete at least two courses on the St. Paul campus, one of which must be CSMA 500 or CSMA 501 (Catholic Thought and Culture I or II).
Graduate students may apply to live at St. Thomas' Bernardi Residence, located on the banks of the Tiber River and just a short walk from the Vatican. Students may also choose to find housing on their own.
