In-Person Study Tour: This semester, the in-person component will take place at the end of the virtual program! If in-person travel is deemed possible for the summer term, students who participate in the semester program, will have the opportunity to travel to Spain to participate in a 10-14 day, 3 credit, study tour with the program director and faculty whom you will get to know over the course of the semester program.

This program typically begins with a 3-6 day orientation that begins in Grenada and Marbella and concludes in Seville. The orientation program focuses on the Art History of Spain and will visit many points of cultural and historical interest such as the Alhambra, the Mesquita de Cordoba, etc.

With over 42,000 students and 2,000 faculty and staff, Cattolica offers some of the most exciting and challenging academic programs and disciplines, in areas of medicine and health sciences, economics, business, international relations, political science, psychology and communications.

This virtual program has two excellent options- virtual spring semester only or virtual spring semester and an in-person summer component. For the spring virtual semester only path, students will have up to five online courses to choose from (the University Academic and the International Curriculum or 4 courses and the semester Italian language course). For the extended semester that goes into the summer, students will have up to five courses to choose from both our virtual semester options and in-person summer programs (max 3 in-person courses).

For either path, students can participate in a virtual talent booster program where students will work with a local, Italian organization. This special course (25 hours, non-credit bearing) was designed to maximize the online learning and develop virtual professional skills.
