学生可能会去 for a semester or a month-long summer program called the 罗马Maymester.


Students are eligible to study in Italy after a semester at Mary and must be in attendance at least one semester immediately prior to participating.

Participation is a privilege, and approval by the University of Mary is required. Only students in good academic and behavioral standing are eligible to apply.

Students should have a lively interest in the liberal arts and the intellectual tradition of Western civilization. Preference is given to sophomores and students who have a declared major or minor in the 天主教 studies program. Space is limited and 35 students are accepted each semester.


During the fall and spring semesters, 房间费用, 董事会, and 学费 is the same as our Bismarck campus. All scholarships and financial aid apply to the cost of these programs. Students are responsible for round-trip airfare, a program fee for academic excursions, and spending money for personal travel and meals on the weekends.

The costs are managed differently for the 罗马Maymester. 一定要和他们谈谈 全球研究协调员 了解定价.


The program features specialized courses from the core curriculum. They'll cover topics such as history, theology, art history, Italian, and philosophy. Class房间 days are coupled with excursions into the center of 罗马 where students will have special access to the hidden excavations under St. Peter's Basilica, the treasures of the Vatican Museum, and even an audience with Pope Francis. 但在罗马城外, students will also venture out into the Italian countryside where they will encounter those places shaped more directly by the life of Saint Benedict himself. 真正的, students who study have a first-hand encounter with everything that makes the University of Mary "joyfully Christian, 忠实的天主教徒, 感谢本笃会."


Classes are during the week, leaving many weekends free for travel. Student travel in Europe, if carefully planned, can be exciting and relatively inexpensive.

Are there special occasions to build community?

在星期三, students gather together with the campus chaplains and seminarians from the North American College, for an experience that is the heart of the University of Mary 罗马 Campus, 地理隔离种. Students come together first around the Lord's Table for a joyful celebration of the Mass, 然后, swap stories and reconnect with one another over a traditional Italian meal.


The University of Mary is committed to ever-higher levels of intellectual and cultural engagement for its students and advocates for leadership development in a global environment. The goal is for students to have a rich experience of other cultures and ways of life. This is a unique opportunity for them to experience great beauty and wonder firsthand in the cradle of the Christian faith and our Benedictine values. Students who take this opportunity seriously will return home with an entirely new vision for life and its purpose.

A Day in the Life of a University of Mary 罗马 Campus Student: Making 罗马 Your 首页town

Wake up and get ready for a great day.

In the morning you can head over to the breakfast 房间 to enjoy a simple Italian breakfast of bread, 果酱, 还有一杯美味的卡布奇诺.


In class, you learn about the decay and fall of the late Roman Empire. Then the class will head out into the city coming face-to-face with what everyone just encountered in the class房间.


Students eat in a private dining 房间 where they enjoy an authentic Italian meal: pasta alla norcina, roasted chicken and rosemary potatoes, 新鲜的水果, 等.

An afternoon trip with friends

Head out into the city with your snacks and backpacks in hand. You and your friends hop on the 8 Tram that runs from the Via del Casaletto into the heart of the city. The Italian you learn in class will come in handy while you explore the city.

Taking in the sights and sounds

You and your friends are hunting down a famous painting, The Vocation of St. Matthew by Caravaggio, for your Art 历史 course. 手里拿着地图, you walk your way from Largo Argentina to San Luigi dei Francesi where the painting can be found. 在你去的路上, you take a drink at one of the many small fountains that run throughout the city of 罗马, still working through the ingenuity of the ancient Roman aqueducts. After taking notes for your paper on the painting, you and your friends settle onto the steps of a church in a nearby piazza to do a bit of reading for class the next day.


On the walk back to the Tram, you and your friends run into a group of American students from another university. They tell you that last weekend they took the train to Milan and saw the Duomo and Da Vinci's The Last Supper and that you simply can't miss it. They give you information about which train they took, as well as the hostel where they spent the night while they were there.


You hop on the tram and head back to the neighborhood of the 罗马 campus. 回家前, you notice a few of your classmates enjoying gelato at a local shop and join them. After a long day, you fall exhausted into bed, wondering what surprises the next day will hold!
