Art History at John Cabot Offers The Historical Wealth of Rome 

There is no better place to study Art History than the Eternal City. Museums, monuments, and intricate architecture are all part of the Roman experience. The Art History department at John Cabot University takes full advantage of our location between Europe and the Mediterranean (both treasure troves of historical gems), incorporating on-site learning, excursions, and independent exploration. When Rome is your classroom as an art history student, you can develop historical empathy, get inspired for the thesis task at the end of the degree, and develop critical thinking skills while interacting with the cultural, socio-political, and economic contexts behind the subject matter.

The supportive JCU community will give you the support you need to pursue career success. Art History graduate Odette Lopez can attest to this. She recalls fondly: 

“My graduate studies at JCU have given me the tools I need to navigate a career in the arts. I had excellent professors with whom I remain in contact and who have never failed to encourage or help me, whether with letters of recommendation or advice. Through JCU’s internship opportunities, I worked with ARCA (the Association for Research into Crimes against Art) and the Journal of Art Crime as a guest editor and author, which I am still doing. JCU allowed me to improve my writing and research skills and let me get out of my comfort zone.”
