M Newell in ItalyItalian Study Abroad Programs

Saint Mary's College encourages foreign study as an essential part of a liberal arts education. The Department of Modern Languages regularly sends its majors, minors and other interested students to summer, semester or year-long programs in foreign countries; there is no better way to learn a language and culture than through the day-to-day experience of life in a foreign country. Study at Saint Mary's campus in Rome is strongly encouraged for students considering a minor in Italian. Learn more about the Saint Mary's College Rome Programs below.
