CUA’s Rome program offers third year undergraduate students, and students enrolled in the graduate program the opportunity to explore one of the world’s most dynamic cities, with a wealth of historic, cultural, and architectural sites. In this semester-long program, students are accompanied by a design studio critic from CUArch as they engage in a full-semester program of study that includes design studio, field study, history, theory and the local language. Field trips, guest speakers, and visiting design critics from Italy and other European countries are integrated with each semester's design investigations.
Facilities: CUA has an agreement to operate a facility in Rome with the Australian Catholic University. It is a 24, 000 square foot building that houses residence, dining, classroom, and studio space. The property is located on Rome's Janiculum Hill, bordering the ancient Roman neighborhood of Trastevere. The space is available for the Spring 2016 CUArch program. Learn more . . .
