World Scholars - Rome is an exclusive opportunity for students admitted to the University of Delaware World Scholars Program.

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.

Class of 2025 UD World Scholars will study abroad twice, including spring semester of their freshman year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

World 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 staff support to the students and as a liaison between the University of Delaware and faculty and staff at John Cabot University. This staff member will also gather students throughout the semester 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, opening and closing celebrations and full access to all JCU facilities and activities.

It does not include the cost of an Italian visa or Permit to Stay fees. Students should budget approximately $100 for visa and approximately $200 for the Permit to Stay. CGPS and JCU staff will assist students with both processes.


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



ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Before making the decision to study abroad, students with disabilities should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some study abroad locations may differ from the United States. Review our Diversity Abroad information with your family. You are also welcome to speak with World Scholar Program leadership to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.

Courses: Honors credit may be available. Check with the faculty director and the Honors program for approval (check before departure). Courses listed on this page are representative of offerings at John Cabot University in Rome.

All courses listed below are taught in English (with the exception of foreign language courses). Courses meet UD graduation requirements.

Scholars will enroll in POSC 240 Introduction to Global Politics and will select three or four additional courses. Honors students may take POSC 240 for Honors credit.

World Scholars will work with their UD academic advisors to select courses for their semester abroad. World Scholars should select alternate courses in the event that primary course choices are full or not offered.

World Scholars who do not see a course listed below that they need should email Meghan (gladlem@udel.edu). The email should include:
--Course code (ex. SPAN 301)
--Reason why you need to take this course - what requirement does the course fill for you?
--Confirm if your advisor agrees that you need to take this course

Please note that the courses listed below have been reviewed by UD departments and approved as UD course equivalencies. This is a comprehensive list and not ALL of these courses may be offered in Spring 2022. Course offerings are subject to change.
