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. Please note that coursework for the Virtual Internship program will take place remotely.
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. 

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.

Please note that housing is not included in Virtual Internship programs.

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. You also have the option to enroll in up to 2 CEA virtual 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.

CEA virtual courses are taught in English using an online Learning Management System. You are expected to be an active participant in online forums, in addition to completing your regular readings, videos and homework. You can expect a blend of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (at your own pace) learning approaches that provide individual attention and flexibility for your learning style. Engaging in your “own way” gives you an opportunity to showcase your engagement in any topic or assignment while being part of an online global learning community.

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.

Excursions

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.

Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri

Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri

This two-day excursion begins with an exploration of the archaeological remains of the ancient town of Pompeii. Preserved by the ash and lava spewed out by Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., Pompeii offers a snapshot of ancient Roman life. From the frescoes of the House of Vettii (an example of wealthy merchants’ homes) and the central Forum square, to the Baths and the Sacrarium of the Lares, you’ll marvel at Pompeii’s former glamour, now merely dust.

Next we’ll visit the small town of Sorrento, with its narrow alleys and beaches. Known as the pearl of the Gulf of Naples, this scenic village offers views of the islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida.

Capri has many nicknames: the Enchanted Island, the Blue Island, the Sleeping Beauty, and the Island of Love. Spend the day exploring the island’s many beautiful sites. Known as a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous, the Isle of Capri caters to visitors with its blend of simplicity, natural beauty, and busy glitz.

The allure of the island views, rocky seashores, and scenic charm will enliven you to investigate their surroundings. Our time on Capri begins with a motorboat trip to the Blue Grotto, a magical place with crystal blue water. The rest of the day, you’ll explore the island’s two towns, Capri and Anacapri, each speckled with designer boutiques, small shops, and hidden wonders.

The Gardens of Ninfa

The Gardens of Ninfa

The Gardens of Ninfa take their name from nymphaeum, or place of the nymphs, and are considered to be among the most beautiful in the world. Built atop upon the ruins of an ancient settlement, the gardens are a unique example of an integrated eco-system that combines natural, cultural, and historical elements. The secret of Ninfa’s lush beauty lies in its exceptional microclimate, which allows the growth of local and exotic vegetation species. We’ll visit the gardens when they are in full bloom and finish the day with a tour of a local wine estate, where we’ll uncover the secrets of enology and gastronomy.

Ostia Antica

Ostia Antica

Ostia Antica, founded by the Romans in the 4th century BC, functioned as Rome’s main port for over 600 years. Romans, foreigners, sailors, and slaves populated the port, making this town an important focal point of defense and trade. This mélange of cultures created an interesting contrast to the rich and upper-class residents of Pompeii. During our visit to Ostia Antica you’ll visit the historical inhabitants’ homes, shops, restaurants and bakery and witness the diversity evident in the shrines, temples, and sanctuaries scattered throughout the area.

Tivoli

Tivoli

Ancient Tibur, just 30 minutes outside of Rome, boasts clean, crisp air in the scenic countryside. Roman aristocrats once frolicked to Tivoli, cementing its reputation as a holiday resort. We’ll visit the famous Villa Adriana, constructed by the Emperor Hadrian who spent his entire life shaping it into one of the largest, most extravagant villas in the Roman Empire. We’ll also tour Villa D’Este; once a Benedictine convent, Cardinal Ippolito d’Este refurbished it into a luxurious villa with splendid gardens and over 40 elaborate fountains, including water-works that activate the musical pipes of an organ.
