John Felice Rome Center

Summer Abroad Programs- Rome

Let Rome come to your home! In response to the COVID-19 emergency, Loyola University Chicago's John Felice Rome Center is offering a ​summer online program of courses to give students the opportunity to study abroad from the comfort of their own home.

​An engaging blend of Rome-centered and globally relevant courses will allow students to engage in their education through the guidance and expertise of local Rome-based instructors, who will teach their popular courses on location.

Students will learn about art, theology, history, creative writing, and the Italian language with the eternal city of Rome as a backdrop. Plus, all courses will be taught mostly asynchronously, giving students the opportunity to schedule their classes around other commitments they may have this summer.

Current Loyola University Chicago students can sign up through LOCUS - no application is required

Incoming Loyola University Chicago freshmen/transfer students should email the Undergraduate Admission Office for information about taking summer coursework

Visiting students can apply as a non-degree student for Summer 2020. Choose "Create An Account" to create a profile or "Log In" if you already have an account with Loyola University Chicago. Once you are in your profile, click "Start A New Application">"2020">"2020 Visiting/Non-Degree"
