John Carroll University at Vatican City (Fall Semester)

The study abroad program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to study in Vatican City while earning John Carroll University credits, just as if courses were taken on the John Carroll campus. Students are able to take 12-15 credit hours at our host institution, the Università Pontificia Urbaniana, to fulfill the requirements of the JCU Academic Core. The Program also includes a three week immersion where students study the Italian Language, hike and get to live as Italians do. We also travel as a group to different parts of Italy.
