John Cabot University (JCU)

JCU offers students the chance to explore Rome as a living laboratory. From Etruscan ruins and the Roman Colosseum to the Christian catacombs and the Vatican, learners 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 75 different countries. Every day students will learn with peers from all over the world, who will share their ideas and perspectives in class — and their friendship outside of class.
