Academic Programs

Students who are enrolled in the Catholic Studies program in Rome have the opportunity to take courses at the Dominican Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum), which draws professors and students from around the globe. Courses offered in English, are especially suited for our interdisciplinary program and some include lectures at actual sites in the city. The Catholic Studies Rome program is a study abroad program that began in the Fall of 1998 and offers students the opportunity to spend a semester studying in the Eternal City while working toward their St. Thomas degree.

The Bernardi campus is also proud to host the University of St. Thomas "Core Semester in Rome" program, which began in Fall of 2016. This exciting new opportunity gives students a chance to live and study in Rome while taking classes that are part of the Core Curriculum. For more information, visit the program page.
