IRVING, TX (04/28/22) – The University of Dallas is expanding its Summer Rome Program to include two 6-week sessions to serve the university’s currently enrolled students, as well as expanding the campus summer experience for students at the main Irving campus.
“Expanding our signature Rome Program during the summer term gives our students a chance to experience what so many generations of our alumni have come to love – that is, the ability to learn about great works and the roots of Western civilization while living in and traveling to the places they learn about,” said Vice President, Dean and Director of the Rome Campus Peter Hatlie, Ph.D., professor of classics.
UD’s Rome Program, which began in 1970 and is one of the longest-running study abroad programs in Italy, was one of few university study abroad programs to remain open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The expanded summer program will better accommodate students who were unable to participate in the fall or spring semesters, whether due to COVID-19 restrictions or for other reasons. As of April 30, vaccination restrictions for entry into Italy will be lifted for university students, although as with all Italian regulations, such requirements may change at any time and are out of the university's control.
Three sessions of the Summer Rome Program are now offered, as students can choose either six-week session or the full summer Rome term. The first session runs May 16 through July 11 and the second session June 23 through Aug. 9; for full summer Rome, students enroll for the entire summer, from May 16 through Aug. 9. Each option includes a 10-day trip to Greece from June 28 through July 11. For more information, please visit udallas.edu/romesummer.
An enhanced Mayterm session will be offered on the main campus in Irving, Texas, from May 17 through June 3 for currently enrolled students and those from other universities. Current UD students will be provided with free housing on campus, and all students will have opportunities to participate in Discover Dallas sightseeing tours. Meal plans will be available. Students may also take courses online during the summer in either the Summer I term from June 6 through July 8 or the Summer II term from July 11 through Aug. 12.
