Combine an American liberal arts education with the history and cultural heritage of Rome and you’ll find yourself at John Cabot University. This program offers you a direct-enrollment option at an American university in Rome, Italy.

John Cabot University (JCU), founded in 1972, is an independent, four-year liberal arts university offering undergraduate degrees and study abroad programs to English-speaking students from all over the world. At JCU you will learn in small classes from professors who encourage dialogue and use the city of Rome as a learning laboratory.

You will be able to choose from a wide variety of courses from business to humanities to social sciences. JCU's campus is located in the heart of Rome, in the historic Trastevere neighborhood, just across the river from some of Rome's greatest attractions.
