Academics and Admissions

From art to history to politics, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the world in which we live and its ancient and modern origins. In Rome, the city and country – through excursions included in tuition to other areas of historical significance – become your classroom.

Study at Assumption's Rome Campus and immerse yourself in the very best of the classic liberal arts tradition, which is woven into the fabric of the city. The campus is staffed by Assumption faculty members versed in Italian history and culture and eager to share their knowledge with students. 

A variety of liberal arts and pre-professional courses are offered each semester at Assumption's Rome Campus. Course offerings may include history, art history, theology, philosophy, comparative literature, Italian, accounting, human services and rehabilitation studies, among others. Most courses count towards general education requirements, so students can maintain progress toward their degree while getting the most advantage from study in Rome.  Students of affiliated institutions travel to Rome knowing that they will receive full credit for all courses taken at the Rome campus.  For students from other American colleges and universities, Assumption staff will make every effort to ensure that they, too, receive full credit for courses taken in Rome.
