The Roman-Greco program gives students the opportunity to explore classical and contemporary art, history, religion and literature in Rome and Athens. While students will be exposed to Italian and Greek language, courses are taught in English, both in the classroom and on historical and archaeological sites or in museums. The focus is based on a structured curriculum, always leaving room for the exploration of unique opportunities presented by the intellectual and cultural resources of Italy and Greece.
The Australian program is located in Fremantle in western Australia, at the foot of the Swan River near the Indian Ocean, about 32 miles from the capital city of Perth. Students enroll at the University of Notre Dame Australia - the country's first private, Catholic university. While enrolled, students study Australian history and society among other courses of their choice. The participants are housed in foreign student residences.
