This program allows students to earn four credits over a concentrated three-week program of study. Because the program is concentrated in three weeks, it is completed in the second week of June.  This allows students to pursue summer employment after the program is over. During the three-week session, students will be able to select from a group of courses which focuses on different aspects of human rights law.  The course selections include existing offerings in Catholic University’s curriculum, as well as courses designed specifically for this program.  Formal study will be supplemented with planned visits to local legal institutions and organizations, as well as the opportunity to explore the city of Rome and enjoy some of Italy’s religious, cultural, and historic treasures.
