Loyola University Chicago

John Felice Rome Center


You will find classrooms everywhere in Rome: on campus, at historical sites, in places of grand culture, on study trips—and, yes, even in office cubicles.

An internship is a great way to take full advantage of your time in Rome, to hone your Italian language skills, and to see the global business world as an insider. We don’t expect you to have mastered Italian or have studied it at all previously. While language experience, especially in Italian, is beneficial and increased the number of potential placements, there are ways for you to have a meaningful internship in Rome while learning the language for the first time.

To date, more than 100 JFRC students have served in more than 40 locations, completing internships in art galleries, with non-governmental organizations, education institutions, business companies, and exciting startups.
