The Rome Experience



More than just a semester abroad.

It’s one thing to read the great books. It’s quite another to experience firsthand where many of their stories took place.

The University of Dallas Rome Program has been changing lives for more than 50 years with a unique curriculum that combines intensive study of art, architecture, history, literature, theology and philosophy with travel that transports students to the very places where Western civilization first flourished and where Catholic intellectual and spiritual traditions continue to flourish today.

Students seem as eager to embrace the challenges of our Core curriculum as they do the pleasures of living in Europe. It's exciting to see a whole new world open up to them.
