About the Program

Be part of a journey. An adventure. One that dares you to try something new everyday. Meet lifelong best friends. Pass the Colosseum instead of the arches on the way to class. Eat a gelato. It’s everything you love about St. Thomas, now in Rome.

  • Earn 4 core requirements. Choose four courses from an expanded list of classes, including ENGL 203 Texts in Conversation: Thematic/Intertextual Perspectives, plus a 2-credit Italian language course.
