John Cabot University is a small American liberal arts university in the Trastevere rione of Rome, Italy. It is named for the Venetian explorer Giovanni Caboto, it was established in 1972 as a split-off from the American University of Rome, and until about 1991 was known as John Cabot International College.[3]:461 About 66% of students are female.[2]


The university offers associate and BA degrees in humanities subjects and in business administration.[4]:55 It also offers single courses in a variety of subjects including Italian cinema and language.[4]:55 Classes are taught in English.[2]


The university is accredited in the United States by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.[2] It was formerly academically associated with Hiram College in Hiram, Ohio.[5] Degrees in business administration, international affairs and public administration were formerly accredited by the University of Wales,[4]:55 which was abolished in 2011 after revelations of abusive accreditation.[6]
