Study Abroad in Rome
Experience student life at a large, degree-granting university with a focus on international students, as well as at the CEA Rome Center, with courses that take you outside of the classroom, using the city and its people to enhance your learning and discovery. 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.

Where You'll Study
Students take classes at the CEA Rome Center, John Cabot University and optionally at the Providence College Center.
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.
Our unique collaboration with Providence College allows you to take courses at the Providence College Center and study theology and religion in the very heart of Christendom. Long a religious and cultural crossroads, Rome is the ideal place to delve into religious studies as you explore significant sites such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Catacombs of Santa Priscilla.
Students will receive a transcript from the University of New Haven, CEA’s School of Record, John Cabot University and - if opted for a PC course – also from Providence College upon completion of their program.
