JCU Prepares Students To Bridge Cultures Throughout Their Careers 

Taking Italian Studies at John Cabot means learning from highly qualified faculty members from prestigious professional backgrounds. As alumna Amanda Rose Bush found, our professors have plenty of valuable wisdom to impart. She recalls: “I learned so much from all my professors at JCU and felt supported as both a student and an individual. The impact that many of my professors had on me, particularly Federica Capoferri, Carlos Dews, and Isabella Clough Marinaro, remains present even over a decade later. My exploration of literature with Professors Capoferri and Dews allowed me to better understand the socio-historical context presented in Professor Marinaro’s sociology course. I was deeply inspired by all three professors, who were extremely respectful and encouraging to students and served as a model for how one’s passions can become one’s research and ultimately, career.”
