Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Imagine studying art history as you gaze up at the Sistine Chapel, or learning about world religions just a few blocks from the Vatican. Oh, and then there's the food... life in the Eternal City is truly an experience of a lifetime! Study abroad in Rome with CEA and discover la dolce vita — the sweet life — in Italy's largest city, as you turn this historical city into your living classroom. Experience subjects like archaeology, theology, business, photography and political science as real-world learning opportunities throughout your amazing host city. Learn about Art History inside a Vatican Palace, explore the Forum with your Archaeology professor, and meet with local students, religious leaders and politicians. Go behind the scenes of artisans’ workshops, private businesses, vineyards and more on academic field trips that provide students with a more personal insight into the host culture, and a more refined international cultural fluency. Gain hands-on learning opportunities that will not only advance your education, but also enrich your life.

Choose from a broad range of academic programs through the CEA Rome Center and our partner universities, the Providence College Center for Theology & Religious Studies, LUISS Guido Carli University, and John Cabot University. You’ll find courses that inspire you, broaden your perspective, immerse you in the Italian culture and advance your education in ways you never imagined.
Available programs include:
• Liberal Arts & Sciences
• Theology & Religious Studies
• John Cabot University—Full Curriculum
• Politics, Economics & Business
Whichever CEA study abroad adventure you choose, internships, service learning and volunteer opportunities are always available to enrich your experience!


Whether you’re visiting the Italian Senate, meeting with famous Italian designers, stomping grapes at a vineyard, or studying history inside a Vatican palace, you’ll be collecting once-in-a-lifetime experiences throughout your study abroad adventure in Rome. Art, politics, diplomacy, business, fashion, religion, cinema—Rome has it all!
