From the catacombs, to the grand spectacle of Baroque exuberance, no place captures the span of Christian experience like Rome. As the capital of Western Christianity for a millennium and a half, Rome served as the centerpiece of Christian devotion, attracting saints and sinners in every century, and retaining their palpable imprint. Rome remains a center for pilgrimage and the deepening of spiritual insight.

Assumption’s Rome Campus provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to deepen one’s faith, explore Christianity or learn more about a faith community that has shaped modern society. The campus, located a short walk to Vatican City and many historic churches, provides easy access to obtain a better understanding of the Catholic Faith.

The Rome Experience

    "By far my favorite part about taking classes in Rome is the out-of-classroom experience. Not only are we learning about the incredible amount of history that Rome has to offer but we're witnessing it firsthand. I have really been able to blossom as a student."

    “I would highly recommend going to the Rome campus. It is an experience of a lifetime. I learned so many things about myself while abroad . I am a completely different person now."

    “I would most definitely recommend this to others. One of the main reasons why I chose Assumption was for the community feeling that it offers. This community component flourishes at the Rome Campus because it is such a small unique program that not many universities offer."

    “The Rome campus wasn't just a study abroad. It was a home where I lived with family. The atmosphere blended the students, the professors, our cook, and the countless others who we saw everyday, because like our extended family, they made our experience ten times better."
