John Felice Rome Center
Over the course of four decades, the John Felice Rome Center has established itself as Italy's premier study-abroad program. Over 200 students from dozens of universities across the United States come here each semester seeking a full-immersion learning experience that promises to energize, enrich, and expand their horizons. Course information is organized by academic term. All classes are worth three credit hours (0.75 GAC units), unless otherwise noted.
Rome makes no small promises—so you should make no small plans. With that aim, 200 students come to the John Felice Rome Center each semester for an immersive, modern experience rooted in the grandeur of centuries past. Drawing on the cultural riches of Rome, the JFRC takes full advantage of Rome as your classroom and home.
The JFRC's multi-level, residential campus spans five acres in the upper Balduina district of Monte Mario, Rome's highest hill. The neighborhood is home to diplomats, senators, judges, and other distinguished families. By living on a campus in the center of a great neighborhood, you will have everything you need.
The nearest bus stop is only two blocks away, providing a short, 20-minute ride to Vatican City or an easy, 40-minute trip to downtown. Within walking distance are grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, a salon, a convenience store, a post office, banks and ATMs, and other small businesses.
