Program Description:
Hosted by: John Cabot University

Academic Focus: Italian, history, political science, classics, art history, studio/visual arts, religion, and economics. Courses are primarily offered in English, but all students study Italian language. This program is open to all majors, but may be particularly suitable to students with academic interests in the majors listed above.

Approximate Dates: Fall: early September to mid December; Spring: mid January to mid May

Eligibility Requirements:   A minimum 3.0 GPA, good academic standing, and at least one semester of college-level Italian. Preference will be given to students who have taken Italian at Emory in the one or two semesters directly preceding the study abroad semester.

Courses: Courses are primarily offered in English, but all students study Italian language. All Italian language classes taken at John Cabot University will transfer back as LING 151 at Emory.
Emory requires that all students take at least one Italian language class for a letter grade while at John Cabot University.  Students must take the next level of Italian language while at JCU (e.g. if you've taken the required ITAL 101 at Emory, you must take ITAL 102 while at JCU and you will receive LING 151 credit, not ITAL 102 credit.) 

Students will earn a total of 15-16 credits per semester at JCU by taking an Italian language class (3-4 credits, depending on the level) and four JCU courses (3 credits each).

The apartments offer amenities such as porter service, linen changes, and a living space + kitchen furnished with cooking necessities.

Visa: Students studying in Italy will require a student visa which will be affixed to a page in the passport. John Cabot University will provide instructions for this process. It is imperative that students immediately apply for a passport if they do not already have one or renew their passport if it will expire within six months of the end date of the program.
