Study International Affairs in Rome
B.A. in International Affairs
The Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs at John Cabot University provides students with an opportunity to understand contemporary global problems and issues.
The program focuses on the institutions and the processes by which international affairs are conducted and on the forces which influence global policy-making. The emphasis is not only upon those factors which cause international conflict, but also upon the instruments of peace.
JCU's curriculum in International Affairs has traditional strengths in global justice, public policy, European institutions, religion and politics, peace and conflict resolution studies, human rights and global political theory.
Reflecting its home in Rome, the curriculum is inserted in a unique international and multicultural context with special exposure to a thick hub of international institutions, organizations and diplomats, all propelled forward by a city that boasts to be the capital of both a political state (Italy) and a transnational religious faith (the Catholic Church), in addition, of course, to its immense, unparalleled political and cultural historical legacy.
This degree program will be of value to anyone planning a professional career with an international dimension. It prepares students for future work or graduate study in:
- International Institutions
- Global Development Organizations
- Diplomacy and Foreign Service
- Transnational Financial, Business and Law Firms and Corporations
- Global Service and Advocacy
JCU’s Career Services Office connects students with hundreds of competitive internships per semester. By taking advantage of these services, you could graduate from college having completed an internship working in your desired field, from assisting in the US Embassy’s daily operations to drafting policy briefs at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
