Program Description

The University of Delaware World Scholars Program is a four-year program for internationalizing a student's undergraduate career. Choosing from a wide range of majors, World Scholars are supported in their studies with internationally-focused academics, experiences, and opportunities that will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world. UD World Scholars study abroad twice, beginning with the first semester of their first year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

Scholars heading to Rome, “la città eterna,” will study at our partner institution, John Cabot University (JCU), an accredited, degree-granting liberal arts institution enrolling over 800 students originating from across the U.S. and the world. JCU’s location in the trendy, bohemian Trastevere neighborhood not far from the Vatican and the banks of the Tiber make it ideally situated for students wishing to live and learn amidst a unique blend of the ancient and the contemporary.

John Cabot’s facilities include the Guarini campus with its patio and courtyard, whose entry gate dates from the third century, and the Tiber campus, just a ten-minute walk away. Both contain classrooms and offices and are equipped with wireless internet. JCU’s status as a full-fledged secondary educational institution means that it offers an array of services similar to those of a small U.S.-based campus and to which UD students have access, for example student clubs, sports activities, library, cultural and social events, counseling services, and a residence life staff.

Courses are taught by JCU’s approximately 100 international faculty, many of whom were educated in the United States. Instructional methods and grading are based on the U.S. system. Instruction takes place in English except for foreign language courses. UD students will take Introduction to Global Politics (POSC 240) together and may then choose additional options from a menu of recommended courses. Some of the courses include out-of-class experiences around Rome to take advantage of the city’s historic and artistic resources, which may require an additional fee.

UD World Scholars will live in a residence hall on the campus of John Cabot University, and will have upperclass residence assistants living with them. Students in this program will also benefit from the time and expertise of an additional staff member in Rome who will be assigned exclusively to the UD cohort. This individual will serve as 24/7 staff support to the students and as a liaison between the University of Delaware and faculty and staff at our partner institution, John Cabot University. This staff member will also gather students on a weekly basis for excursions for special opportunities and excursions that take advantage of this incredible geographic location.

The program fee covers housing, medical insurance, some meals, airport transfers in Rome for those traveling on the recommended flights, orientation week activities, numerous excursions throughout the fall, and full access to all JCU facilities and activities.

It does not include the cost of an Italian visa or Permit to Stay; students should budget approximately $200 for these documents.

NOTE: The program fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Rome on August 26. For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,400. Students who wish to travel with the UD representative, must book the recommended flights as outlined in your /mybluehenhome portal.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Before making the decision to study abroad, prospective students with disabilities should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some study abroad locations may differ from the United States. Review these questions with World Scholar Program leadership to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
All courses are taught in English and meet UD graduation requirements.

Scholars will co-enroll in POSC 240 Introduction to Global Politics and will select three additional courses. Advising and course selection will take place prior to or during Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) at the University of Delaware. In preparation, students should review their major course requirements.

Through a close study of both primary and secondary materials in theology, spirituality, aesthetics, and social history, this course will introduce students to the major forms and institutions of religious thought and practice in medieval, Christian Europe (from Saint Augustine to the rise of humanism).

We will then turn to alternative expressions of medieval religious faith in the work of several mystics, notably Meister Eckhart and Angela of Foligno. Finally we will study the reactions of the Church to the rise of science in the fifteenth century (we will look at the trial of Giordano Bruno) and will end with an appraisal of the continuity and renewal of Renaissance Humanism and its influence on the humanities as studied in a Liberal Arts Curriculum today.(Partially on-site; activity fee: €10 or $15)

On-site classes will be held in a variety of neighborhoods in the city in order to analyze the area’s role as a social entity and its relationship with the wider urban context. We will examine the issues and problems facing Rome today, such as housing, degradation and renewal, environmental questions, transportation, multiculturalism, wealth and poverty, social conflict and political identities. These issues will be contextualized within theories of urban sociology and also within an explanation of Rome’s urban development over the centuries and, in particular, since it became the national capital in 1870. Through readings, film clips, interviews and guest speakers, students will also analyze the way the city is narrated by some of its residents.

Other important things to note:
  • IGS reserves the right to cancel a program at any time due to under-enrollment, safety/health/security issues, staffing issues, or any other relevant reason.
Tuition charged to World Scholars is the same as that charged to other incoming freshmen at the University of Delaware. New rates are released every July.

The World Scholars Program Fee ($8647 for fall 2018) is a one-time fee that includes housing, dining, international insurance, select excursions and activities abroad, as well as resources to support your success provided by UD and our partner institutions. The program fee also serves as the foundation for the resources and opportunities that World Scholars will receive for the duration of their four-year participation in the UD World Scholars Program.

Scholars should reference the Financial Aid Award Notice, a packet received after admission, for their custom scholarship and need-based aid information. Note: Financial aid (federal, state and UD scholarships/grants, along with loans) is split evenly between the fall and spring semesters, with half of the overall award supporting program costs in the fall. Tuition payments must be made in accordance with the University of Delaware tuition and fee payment schedule.

To enroll as a UD World Scholar, students must pay two enrollment deposits by May 1 -- $500 to confirm enrollment at UD and $500 to confirm enrollment in the World Scholars Program. Both deposit amounts are deducted from the final University bill.
