About

Students of the Humanistic Studies program at John Cabot University learn to appreciate and analyze cultures by exploring literature, art, history, philosophy, and religion.

Overview

Key Features

For instance, they might examine Homer's poetry or Plato's ethics, study sacred paintings or modernist architecture, analyze the workings of slavery or the rise and fall of fascism, or evaluate James Joyce's writing or Andy Warhol's pop art. By exploring such cultural products, they learn to understand the distinctive objects, approaches, and debates in the relevant fields and how to connect, compare, and theorize about them.

They may also choose to concentrate on one or more specific fields, developing their own interests and expertise and taking advantage of the University's unique location in Rome, Italy, and the Mediterranean. The cultural knowledge that students of the Humanistic Studies program at John Cabot University gain and the reading, analysis, and research skills that they develop provide the basis for a wide range of graduate studies and careers.
