Where You'll Study
Students take classes at the CEA Rome Center, Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (LUISS University) and optionally at the Providence College Center.
The CEA Rome Center is in the vibrant Prati neighborhood, within walking distance of Vatican City, Castel Sant’Angelo, and other UNESCO World Heritage sites. This central location makes it easy to visit galleries, museums, art studios, local businesses, historic sites, food markets, and more—all designed to bring lessons taught in the classroom to life.
The LUISS University is known for its selective admissions and focus on business, market demands, and information technology. For the last 15 years, LUISS University has ranked among Italy’s top three social science institutions.
Our unique collaboration with Providence College allows you to take courses at the Providence College Center and study theology and religion in the very heart of Christendom. Long a religious and cultural crossroads, Rome is the ideal place to delve into religious studies as you explore significant sites such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Catacombs of Santa Priscilla.
Students will receive a transcript from the University of New Haven, CEA’s School of Record, LUISS University and - if opted for a PC course – also from Providence College upon completion of their program.
