About the Program

Program Description

Choose from the full range of courses at our partner, John Cabot University (JCU). All courses at JCU are taught in English. Experience student life at a large, degree-granting university with a focus on international students, as well as at the CEA Rome Center. The program's design means that courses at both institutions complement one another, so you benefit from the unique qualities and distinct learning environments of each.

Program Structure

Each semester, students with no previous knowledge of Italian language enroll in 1 CEA language course, 1-2 JCU elective courses, 0-3 optional CEA elective courses, and 0-2 optional PC elective courses. High beginning and above Italian language speakers enroll in 1-2 JCU elective courses, 0-3 optional CEA elective courses, and 0-2 optional PC elective courses.

JCU elective courses meet for 45-60 contact hours/3-4 credits. CEA language courses meet for 60 contact hours/4 credits. CEA elective courses and PC elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. Semester students may earn 12-17 credits (up to 255 contact hours). Academic year students may earn up to a total of 24-34 credits (up to 510 contact hours).

CEA classes meet 1-4 times per week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your course may be scheduled on Friday.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and indicate your estimated Italian language level. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Italy. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

Courses at the CEA Rome Center allow you to explore and experience all that the Eternal City has to offer. Courses are taught in English and take full advantage of Roman history and culture, with a focus on active learning outside the classroom. Courses in all levels of Italian are available. The CEA Rome Center is in the vibrant Prati neighborhood, within walking distance of Vatican City, Castel Sant’Angelo, and other UNESCO World Heritage sites. This central location makes it easy to visit galleries, museums, art studios, local businesses, historic sites, food markets, and more—all designed to bring lessons taught in the classroom to life.
Founded in 1972, John Cabot University is the first American regionally accredited liberal arts institution in Italy. Courses are taught in English, and you’ll attend class with American, Italian and European students. JCU is known for its focus on active learning, its multicultural faculty, and its international student body. 

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in Rome, you can choose standard CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Life-Long Benefits
I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
