Program Description:
The TCNJ Center for Global Engagement and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, have established a semester-long program for TCNJ students in Milan, Italy.  Students will be able to experience a semester abroad in one of the most beautiful and lively cities in Europe!



A cosmopolitan, multicultural environment is set around the two main cloisters of the historic Saint Ambrose monastery designed by Bramante. The heart of Università Cattolica is located here, in Largo Gemelli. The historic seat of the university is a campus in the city centre, serving more than 30,000 students; it is a setting which unites tradition and modernity, rigor and creativity, excellence and innovation.

The campus, one of the most prestigious architectural complexes in Milan, is located in what was a Cistercian monastery adjacent to the Basilica of Saint Ambrose. The two cloisters, with the adjoining, early 20th century facade designed by Giovanni Muzio, have become the symbol of the university.

But the Milan campus of Università Cattolica is much more than this. It is an extensive campus, almost a university town, with different hubs throughout the heart of the city, where it is possible to partake in lively interdisciplinary, educational and cultural debate.

Academic Program

Founded in Milan in 1921 by Father Agostino Gemelli, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is Europe's most important Catholic university.

Academic excellence, a commitment to charting the frontiers of research, and high standards of services are the strengths of an institution long recognised for its openness to innovation and change. Università Cattolica holds a place in European tradition as a seat of cultural development; the strong and essential focus on a comprehensive, unifying building of knowledge facilitates an understanding and interpretation of the complexities of life today. The university’s mission translates into the offer of an education focused on development of the person as a whole.

Based on these ideals and this commitment, Università Cattolica has educated many of the individuals in past and present positions of leadership in Italy. The thousands of graduates since the institution's foundation include eminent scholars, politicians, lawyers, educators, intellectuals, entrepreneurs, professionals, journalists, writers, publishers, and Church leaders. And there are so many other graduates, some better known than others, who have contributed to building Università Cattolica's reputation in Italy and around the world.
