John Cabot University, 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.
Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or are seeking to study abroad, you will do so in the heart of Rome surrounded by the extraordinarily rich offerings of a city of culture, history, art, creativity, business, and international affairs.
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 also have opportunities for internships at multinational companies, international organizations, NGOs, consulates, government offices, and museums, as well as opportunities for study and travel beyond Italy's borders to Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.
Students who graduate from JCU are accepted at prestigious graduate schools worldwide, including Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics, Bocconi, and many more.
Because of the global nature of the JCU degree, students also start careers at major multinational companies, financial institutions, foundations, cultural organizations and diplomatic organizations, including Bloomberg, Arab African International Bank, Crowne Plaza – Rome, Heidrick & Struggles, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Honda, IBM, J. Paul Getty Museum, the World Food Program, the World Bank and the League of Arab States.
John Cabot University is an American institution of higher education in Rome, Italy. The mission of the University is to provide an educational experience firmly rooted in the American tradition of the liberal arts and solidly international in orientation. The academic programs are designed to use to the fullest extent the unique resources of a multicultural faculty, an international student body, and the extraordinarily rich culture and history of Rome and the surrounding region.
In support of its mission, the University professes a commitment to developing within all students the skills and the learning habits that will make it possible for them to educate themselves throughout their lives, enable students to appreciate, benefit from and contribute to the richness and diversity of other cultures, encourage leaders who will accept responsibility and make positive contributions to an increasingly interdependent and multicultural world, create an academic community composed of both full-time, four-year matriculating students and visiting students that foster intellectual tolerance, freedom, and integrity.
John Cabot University sets the following goals: to achieve an international reputation as a distinguished institution of higher education, to be known for the teaching excellence, the scholarly achievements, and the community service of its faculty, to produce graduates who are sought after by and successful in the international communities of business, public service and academe who aspire to the highest ideals of professional and personal achievement and who motivate a similar dedication to excellence in their colleagues, to provide a campus environment that encourages sensitivity to the diverse ethnic and cultural origins of the members of the University community, to continue to support an active alumni relations program that incorporates and encourages alumni participation in student recruiting, program assessment, and financial development, to preserve the character of the University as an American institution of higher education by attracting a significant percentage of students who are U.S. citizens.
A distinguished, international faculty and staff and a student population representing over seventy countries combine to create a unique learning environment. Opportunities for interaction among faculty, staff and students are provided on an on-going basis in a variety of ways: through organized social and cultural opportunities within the University through contacts outside the University with international scholars, leaders from business and government, and students from the other universities in Rome and academic, personal and career advising.
A primary goal of the instructional program of the University is to provide each student with the academic preparation needed for life-long learning and personal fulfillment in an increasingly multicultural environment. Graduates of the University have been impressively successful in assuming roles of responsibility in their chosen fields and pursuing advanced studies at prestigious institutions in Europe and the United States.
A large percentage of our graduates pursue further studies and careers in international settings. Internationally-educated students find that their credentials for job advancement and career development are well-respected and are often superior to those of others who have not benefited from international experience and training at the University.
There is no better way to prepare oneself for a successful and productive role in today's global world than to choose an education mixing the wealth of real international experience with the U.S. university system's outstanding qualities.
For students interested in the breadth of the liberal arts in majors such as Classical Studies, History, Humanistic Studies, Art History, English Literature, and Italian Studies, as well as for those who want to acquire a more practical and hands-on approach to Business Administration, Marketing, International Affairs, Economics, Political Science and Communications, John Cabot University, is the place to be.
