The International Leadership Semester course is a study abroad program
(maximum 50 students selected) that offers a select group of
Catholic college students from around the United States the opportunity
to study in Rome for a semester. The focus of
the course is growth in knowledge of Western culture and
personal leadership so as to help create a civilization of
justice and love. The semester course is offered in both
fall and spring each year.
Tracing the history of Western
culture through a study of its art, religion and philosophy,
the program culminates by examining the central issues of contemporary
society, thus empowering its students with the tools necessary to
understand and analyze today´s complex and increasingly globalized world. Throughout
the semester, world-renowned intellectual, political, religious, media and business leaders
will also provide guest lectures to offer their perspectives on
the current world situation and the challenges facing humanity in
the 21st century.
Being in Rome, the center of Christianity,
also provides an unparalleled opportunity to examine and discuss the
Church´s history and role in the future of the world.
The program includes visits to major churches in the city,
audiences with the Holy Father, and meetings with some of
the closest collaborators of the Pope in the Roman Curia.
are confident that our course will challenge and stimulate you
and that you will look back on your time in
Rome as one of the highlights of your undergraduate career,
returning to your home country with a greater understanding of
yourself, a different perspective on world affairs, a host of
new friends, and a renewed eagerness to use your talents
for the good of the world.
