Rome offers students the ideal location for majoring in Classical Studies. The Ancient Roman world is still present in the city’s monuments, artwork, and inscriptions, in its rich museum collections, and in the profound influence of the classical tradition on its contemporary architecture. Students majoring in classical studies have the exceptional opportunity to complement their study of classical language and written sources with on-site, first-hand experience of ancient art and material culture in Rome and throughout Italy. Major Roman library holdings greatly facilitate and enhance research in all areas of classical studies, including such specialized disciplines as numismatics, ancient medicine, science, engineering and industry. While this major emphasizes the study of ancient Roman culture and society, the range of courses is designed to provide a solid foundation in classical civilization as a whole, from Greek and Roman literature to ancient history, philosophy, religion, mythology, archaeology, art, and architecture. Through their choice of major electives, students can focus in more depth on one or more of the areas of Greco-Roman culture that interest them the most. The interdisciplinary study of the Classical World teaches students to think analytically about the foundations of Western Civilization, it also prepares them to think critically about their own contemporary world, and to seek innovative solutions to future challenges. Learning Outcomes for the Classical Studies Major LOS 1: Identify, analyze and interpret major historical, cultural, philological and artistic developments of the ancient Mediterranean World. LOS 2: Analyze text, language, and material culture as primary sources, and contextualize these historically, socially, and culturally.

Bachelor of Arts in English Literature

Campus Full time October 2017 Italy Rome

The program emphasizes the historical and cultural understanding of the development of literature in English from the Anglo-Saxon period to the 21st century, but courses in the theory of the various literary genres are also required. [+]

The organized study of literature written in the English language has long proved its worth as a traditional discipline that exercises the imagination, encourages intellectual precision, and inculcates a critical appreciation of humane, liberal values. Students trained in this discipline have generally found that it has provided an appropriate background for careers in a variety of fields beyond the discipline including law, government, diplomacy, journalism, publishing, education, and, by no means least, business. The program emphasizes the historical and cultural understanding of the development of literature in English from the Anglo-Saxon period to the 21st century, but courses in the theory of the various literary genres are also required. In all courses, students must not only read texts with great care, but also criticize them and present the results of their own research in well-written essays. The training in the skills of research and writing culminates in the thesis that a student must present in his/her senior year. There are clear advantages in pursuing an English major at an institution that belongs, like John Cabot University, to the English-speaking academic tradition, and this may be especially true for students whose first language is not English. There is also particular value, however, in studying English literature at an international university, which John Cabot is as well. In this international atmosphere the content of each English course inevitably becomes somewhat internationalized, as it is related to the Italian context and to the other national backgrounds of the various students. Courses in Comparative Literature and Creative Writing are also part of the English Literature program. Learning Outcomes for the English Literature Major Students who complete a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature at John Cabot University have learned to think critically and comparatively and to express their ideas effectively in writing. They have an understanding of the historical development of literatures in English and their cultural contexts, the ability to compare the literary products of different periods and places, and the skills to form original interdisciplinary connections Students with a B.A. in English Literature possess: LOS 1: a foundation in the traditional distinctions between literary genres as well as the ability to think beyond those distinctions in a manner consistent with contemporary literary theory and practice; LOS 2: an historical understanding of the development of literatures in English and of the influence of the literary, cultural, political, and scientific contexts on texts; LOS 3: a foundation in the principles of literary and cultural theory, along with the ability to apply these theoretical approaches in interpretations of literary texts; LOS 4: a comparative perspective on literature and an understanding of the relationship among British, American, other Anglophone literatures, and literature in translation. Students with a B.A. in English Literature are able to: LOS 5: read and write critically in response to primary and secondary literary texts; LOS 6: conduct research competently; LOS 7: report research findings with intellectual and academic honesty; LOS 8: document research accurately and thoroughly, using MLA format; LOS 9: communicate effectively and argue their thesis persuasively.

The Bachelor of Arts in Humanistic Studies offers a wide range of choices in the Humanities to students who wish to pursue a focused program of study that encourages inquiry into the human condition beyond the confines of a single discipline. The Core Curriculum provides a synthetic introduction to the extraordinarily rich traditions of the liberal arts within and beyond Western civilization. The major prepares students to read, study, think, write, and articulate their ideas in the traditions of broad life-long learning and ethically responsible public service inherited from such exemplars as Socrates, Cicero, Petrarch, Thomas Jefferson, Frederick Douglass, and Simone de Beauvoir. Building upon this foundation, students choose major electives from a wide range of disciplines to further their understandings of the areas within the Humanities that interest them most. In both individual courses and the major as a whole, this program takes special advantage of the unique access John Cabot students have to the cultural, aesthetic, philosophical, and historical legacy of Rome and the Mediterranean—the ancient birthplace and Renaissance progenitor of our modern academic humanities. Learning Outcomes for the Humanistic Studies Major LOS 1: Identify, interpret, and develop explanations of major trends and features of Western (and to a much more limited extent, non-Western) historical, cultural, artistic, and intellectual development. LOS 2: Identify, interpret and discuss key trends and developments in Western literature, philosophy, and art. LOS 3: Apply knowledge and perspectives drawn from multiple humanities disciplines to new contexts.

The Bachelor of Arts in Italian Studies is a rigorous interdisciplinary degree that combines the study of Italian literature, culture, society, and politics while developing students’ fluency in Italian language. The context of an American liberal arts university exposes students to many fields of study and ways of approaching intellectual problems related to Italy, while John Cabot University’s Roman setting enables students to engage daily with the multifaceted realities of contemporary Italian life. The core curriculum combines a progression of language courses which develop a high level of proficiency in all language skills areas (C1 of the Common European Framework) with courses that provide students with a strong foundation in Italian literary and cultural studies and in the country’s evolving social, political and business environments. Students are then guided to further carve out their preferred areas of specialization through appropriate choices of major electives. Italian Studies majors have the exceptional opportunity to enhance their study with on-site learning and field research, and they are strongly encouraged to do internships in companies, organizations and institutions which best fit their career plans. The major culminates in the final year when each student selects a topic and works individually with a specialized faculty member to research and write a senior thesis. The major is thus designed to develop strong critical, communicative and intercultural skills that are essential preparation for today’s job market. It unites practical training in translation and exposure to the Italian business world with courses in literary, cultural and social theory and methodologies, all in small classes that permit active learning and intensive work with our expert faculty. Our graduates have gone on to work in Italian businesses, media and other culture industries and in Rome’s UN agencies, while others have been accepted to prestigious graduate programs in Italy, the US and internationally.

Art informs and deceives. It forces us to ask questions about art and about ourselves.  What is art, and why is it important to human beings?  Who creates art?  What are the reasons and cognitive and technical processes for its existence?  Do outsiders view a given work of art in the same manner as the work’s intended audience?  Why do some observers perceive Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel as a remarkable work worthy of a place in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, while others see it as an overpriced stool with a bicycle wheel mounted on top?With its wealth of archaeological sites, churches, museums, and contemporary art galleries, Rome offers an environment of unparalleled richness for the study of art and the human experience across time.  John Cabot University's Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History emphasizes art-historical theories and analytic methods with a strong focus on the visual arts of Europe, the Mediterranean and North America.  Given the University’s location at the geographical and temporal crossroads of Europe and the Mediterranean, the program places a strong emphasis upon the visual cultures of Rome and of Italy.   After an initial series of four foundation courses, majors develop their command of art history and its approaches through upper-level courses in a variety of pertinent subject areas. The major culminates in the fourth year, when each student selects a topic and works individually with a specialized faculty member to research and write a senior thesis. Students can win internships at institutions that include the Museo Nazionale Romano, the Galleria Doria Pamphilj, and the Biblioteca Angelica, Europe’s first public library and a major repository of illuminated manuscripts.The faculty consists of internationally recognized scholars strongly committed both to teaching and to research. The faculty members are active in their fields and often involve students in their research endeavors. Earning a bachelor’s degree in art history can constitute the first step toward a fascinating career in the field—for example, as a college professor, a museum or gallery curator, a museum educator, or a cultural officer in the diplomatic corps.  The skills gained through art historical training, especially analytic and critical thinking and effective writing, offer outstanding preparation for careers in law, journalism, marketing, media, secondary education, and many other creative vocations....
