When in Rome

To study in Rome is to personally encounter course material through a city of historical and modern significance.

Response to COVID-19 and Cancellation of Spring 2021 Rome Program

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Office of Education Abroad is closely monitoring developments and making program changes as warranted.  This includes the cancellation of the Spring 2021 Rome Program. A second wave in areas that have otherwise seen improvement could further jeopardize students’ health, academics, and freedom of travel.

A final decision regarding other study abroad programs has not yet been made for Spring 2021. An anouncement is expected in mid-November. Meanwhile, we are doing everything we can to prepare students for a safe and responsible semester abroad. Education abroad advisors remain available to meet with students via Zoom. To schedule a meeting, contact cua-cuabroad@cua.edu.

Continuously updated information can be found on Catholic University's COVID-19 website.

An Exciting Collaboration

The Catholic University of America and the Australian Catholic University jointly operate a campus in Rome, Italy. The collaboration brings together the leading Catholic universities in the United States and Australia in a joint academic endeavor in Rome, about two miles from Vatican City. This agreement builds upon a long-standing relationship between the two universities that has previously allowed Catholic University students to study in Australia and ACU students to study in D.C. Now students from both universities can take advantage of the unique experience of study in Rome.
