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. Three or four 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).
While in Rome, students may 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.
A complete application (available at the Center for Catholic Studies) with a nonrefundable $25 application fee is due to the University of St. Thomas by the following deadlines:
Priority Deadline for FALL 2012 and/or SPRING 2013: January 15, 2012.
Following the priority deadline, applications will continue to be reviewed and accepted on a rolling, space-available basis.
Please contact Dr. John Boyle for more information.
