All Roads Lead to Rome… Including yours! Benvenuti a Roma!
Notre Dame’s programs in Rome, Italy are located throughout the capital city of Rome, an ancient city with nearly 3 million people. Rome is the eternal city, a place where countless artists, poets, writers, generals, film writers/producers, leaders, popes, fashion designers, engineers, architects, and martyrs have called home for nearly 30 centuries. The Vatican, with its masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael, showcases the Pieta, the Sistine Chapel, the Bernini Fountains, and the Renaissance Architecture of St. Peter’s Basilica along with numerous other treasures and antiquities.
Students will take a core course taught through the Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway (RGG), study at a local university, and pursue their own research interests. This program provides students with funding for a disciplinary study and/or internship in Italy during the summer following the completion of the spring semester in Rome, which would be considered part of the spring semester. As a student in Rome, you will find yourself in one of the most stimulating environments available to any undergraduate student in the world. No other location uses the city as a classroom as much as Rome does. Students throughout the city congregate in local cafes or head to local trattorias for a pizza, panino, or dish of pasta.
