John Cabot University in Rome, Italy: the academic experience

At John Cabot University in Rome, degree-seeking and visiting students alike will discover a distinctly American learning experience enriched by our location in Rome and our international student population and faculty.

An American education in Rome
JCU is a liberal arts university offering Bachelor of Arts degrees in 13 fields. Emphasizing the development of critical thinking, communication, and research skills, your JCU education will enhance your knowledge about ideas and culture, but more importantly, it will teach you to think and adapt. This intellectual agility provides you with a strong advantage over those who have not had a significant international experience that will help you to advance in your career or pursue graduate study or both.

• Professors hold degrees from Brown University, Columbia University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the London School of Economics and Political Science, New York University, the University of Bologna, the University of Munich, the University of Rome “La Sapienza,” the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, and Yale, among many others.

• Learn in small classes. John Cabot University’s classes in Rome average about 15 students.

• Experience an American-style learning environment. Get to know your professors. Debate in class. Share your ideas. Write analytical papers. Conduct original research.

• Explore Rome as a living laboratory. From Etruscan ruins and the Roman Colosseum to the Christian catacombs and the Vatican, you will have the chance to study architecture, art, art history, archaeology, history, and religion on location at museums and historic sites.

• Collaborate with students from 55 different countries. Every day you will learn with students from all over the planet—people who will share their ideas and perspectives in class—and their friendship outside of class. Together you will build a global learning community at John Cabot—and lifelong friendships across the continents.

• Learn by doing. Through field trips, internships, research opportunities, and study abroad opportunities (even full-time JCU students study abroad), you will grow personally and intellectually through firsthand experience.
