An International Setting Hosts John Cabot University's Traditional American Liberal Arts Education

John Cabot University (JCU) provides students with a traditional American liberal arts educational experience as they are surrounded by the extraordinarily rich history and culture of Rome. The academic programs are designed to take advantage of the special resources afforded by the diverse international student body and multicultural faculty members. JCU offers degree-seeking and visiting students looking to study abroad in Italy a wide variety of liberal arts majors and a well-rounded curriculum, blending the wealth of an international academic experience with the best qualities of the American university system.

13 Different Degree Programs Offer Multiple Options for John Cabot Students

John Cabot University in Rome, Italy, offers Bachelor of Arts and Associate of Arts degrees in 13 majors: art history, classical studies, English literature, business administration, international affairs, communications, humanistic studies, international business, Italian studies, economics and finance, history, marketing, and political science. Minors may also be selected in any of the major areas, in addition to creative writing, entrepreneurship, philosophy, and psychology.

Clearly Defined Academic Goals Foster Student Success

John Cabot University's mission is to create a multicultural academic community that fosters intellectual tolerance, integrity, and freedom. JCU strives to produce graduates who will be sought after by leaders in the international communities of business, academia, and public service. By providing a broad spectrum of student life, volunteer, and internship opportunities, JCU encourages students to become leaders who aspire to the highest ideals of professional and personal achievementand make positive contributions to the world.

JCU Offers a Multidisciplinary Approach to Education with an International Flavor

Students at John Cabot University are immersed in an international academic community comprising a distinguished international faculty, a multicultural staff, and student population that represents nearly 70 countries . Students build their international networks through on-campus social and cultural events, lectures with visiting international scholars, seminars and workshops featuring international business and government leaders, and through personal and career assistance. JCU students continue to pursue studies and careers in international settings after graduation. Students who have been educated in an international setting typically find their credentials for career development are looked upon more favorably than those of students who have not had the benefit of that international experience.

Liberal Arts in the American System of Higher Education

The American system of higher education differs from most European university systems in that students are encouraged to spend their first two years of studies exploring a variety of academic areas through general distribution requirements. General distribution courses expose students to English composition and literature, mathematics and science, and the humanities, such as philosophy, religion, art history, and theater. Students are encouraged to broaden their intellectual aptitudes and discover previously unrecognized abilities. The general distribution courses help students choose areas of specialization for their junior and senior years.

Written and Spoken English Skills are a Priority in Programs at JCU

As an American university in Rome, Italy and in Europe, JCU attaches particular importance to students being able to write and speak English professionally. All students are required to complete a sequence of courses in English composition and literature upon beginning their educations at JCU. Entering students are given an English composition placement exam to determine their entry level in this sequence of courses. The school's goal is for students to be able to think logically, to articulate clearly, and to appreciate the power of the English language as reflected in its rich literary heritage. Courses in journalism, creative writing, rhetoric, and public speaking further develop students' communication skills in English.

Internship Programs Help Students Build Their International Resumes

John Cabot University's Internship Program gives students chances to enhance their educational experience through working with multinational corporations, embassies and United Nations agencies, cultural institutions, or the media. Not-for-credit internships are available for full-time students and recent graduates.
