New Semester-Long Study Abroad Program Offered in Rome

The new program will bring together students from six Lasallian colleges and universities.

Roman ColiseumManhattan College and the Lasallian Universities Center for Education have partnered for a brand new semester-long study abroad program in Rome, Italy, for the spring 2018 semester.

Within this new program, students can take up to five courses while living in the Lasallian Universities Center for Education for the entirety of the spring semester, with excursions to Assisi, Pisa and other destinations in Italy.  

Courses in international studies, religious studies, Italian language, business, sociology, art history, and literature, among others, will be offered in Rome at the Christian Brothers headquarters. Among the instructors in the program are Ricardo Dello Buono, Ph.D., professor of sociology at Manhattan College, and instructors from Lewis University in Illinois and institutions across the country of Italy.

Students will have the chance to experience Italy while completing major, minor and general education requirements, all of which are transferable and meet curricular needs for a wide variety of degree programs offered at Manhattan College.

For more information, interested students should contact Kevin Gschwend, assistant director of study abroad, at or (718) 862-7527.
