Assumption's Rome Campus

At Assumption's campus in Rome, Italy, the city and the country become your classroom through daily and weekend-long excursions throughout "the eternal city" and the Italian countryside. This unique study abroad experience will enrich your academic and cultural pursuits as you walk in the footsteps of emperors and gladiators then enjoy delectable Italian cuisine or perhaps a cappuccino after class in a local cafe. (Did you know that your financial aid follows you to Rome?)

My professors encouraged me to challenge myself and apply my education to all aspects of life.

I am very thankful for the Spanish program and professors. They emphasized the importance of culture and immersing yourself in the language to internalize what you learned and use it in daily experiences. I can't wait to reflect this in my own classroom!

Assumption's courses and international opportunities expanded my knowledge of a language I love.

Taking courses in Spanish literature, traveling to Argentina to teach, and writing my Honor's thesis in Spanish all have made me a more effective Spanish teacher. My professors encouraged me to become a Fulbright scholar, and I share these experiences with my students.

I chose to major in Spanish and can happily say it was one of the best decisions I have made!

When I started at Assumption, the only path I was sure about was that I wanted to continue learning and using Spanish in my day-to-day life. The Spanish Department and its professors have given me a deep knowledge of the language and culture, and a feeling of belonging.

Assumption exposed me to new and exciting opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible elsewhere.

I wanted to learn what it would be like to work in journalism, a field I’m very passionate about, and Assumption afforded me this opportunity. Professor O'Hara was a huge influence in my decisions. She believed in me and guided me towards my professional and personal goals.
