International Admission


The courses you study during your year in Rome will prepare you to make the most of your three further years of study in the U.S. by providing you with a strong foundation for any of our bachelor's degree programs. Students may participate in the Rome Start program, regardless of major.* Click here for a full list of undergraduate majors.

As a Rome Start student, you will encounter an unrivaled academic experience. Rome Start students are automatically enrolled in three core curriculum courses each semester, which are taken together with other Rome Start students as a first-year cohort.

This unique schedule ensures:

In addition to the Rome Start cohort classes, Rome Start students select two elective courses each semester. These elective courses may be courses within the student’s major, additional core curriculum courses, or simply electives. As an elective course during the Spring semester of the first year in Rome, Rome Start students have the option of participating in Loyola’s internship program. This is a unique opportunity for first year students.

To view the Fall 2014 Rome Start cohort classes, please see the Fall 2014 Schedule Builder.

To view the Fall 2014 elective courses, please see the list of Fall 2014 Course Offerings.

Please note that course selection and availability will vary each semester. All classes are taught in English, except, of course, for Italian language courses.  

*Nursing students are not eligible for the Rome Start program due to the sequential nature of the nursing curriculum.
