Study in Rome, Italy
John Cabot University
Rome, the capital of Italy, has always been a cultural and political stronghold and a crossroads for people from across the globe. The glorious history of the Eternal City can be seen in the form of artwork, exquisite monuments, museums, churches, and architecture. One of the grandest sights in Rome is the great Colosseum, which remains an architectural feat in the eyes of modern engineers. It also has recently been named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
The Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Square, and the Basilica of St. Peter are ever-present reminders of the Catholic Church’s historical and religious influence. Rome is also full of picturesque piazzas and famous fountains. Here, Romans and visitors alike can step out of the hustle and bustle of modern Rome and enjoy people-watching while sipping a caffé. For those looking to study in a cosmopolitan city rich with history, art, architecture, and diverse people from around the globe, Rome beckons!
Founded in 1972, John Cabot University (JCU) is an independent, four-year, U.S.-accredited liberal arts university. Centrally located in the quaint Trastevere neighborhood, JCU is only a short walk away from the Tiber River and many of Rome’s most historic sites. Students at JCU can choose from a wide variety of courses taught in English as well as Italian. Here, students will be immersed in the culture and study alongside Italians.
