Rome, Italy

The Sacred Heart University Freshman Fall in Rome program is located at our partner institution, John Cabot University. John Cabot University, an accredited American University, is located along the banks of the Tiber River in the vibrant Trastevere quarter — historically known as the artists’ district — on the grounds of the prestigious Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei where Galileo once lived and worked. The University combines the academic quality of an independent, accredited university while giving you the services and care of a study abroad program.
