Be an Engaged Global Citizen in the Service of Truth.

As technology makes the world smaller, our ability to function successfully and empathetically in the global community is more important than ever. Our study abroad offerings, which range from one-week to semester-long programs, give you an immersive experience in a foreign culture.

Whether you choose to attend our Rome campus, take a faculty-led trip (past destinations include Israel, China, and Ireland), or participate in a medical mission to Peru, you’ll gain an international perspective of “leadership in the service of truth.”

Everyone says that studying abroad is a life-changing experience, but that is not just a trite saying. My semester in Rome really did change the way that I see the world and opened my eyes to desires and possibilities that I had not considered before. I received so much from the staff, the chaplaincy, and the city itself that gave me the courage to live a more virtuous and dynamic life.
