Program Overview

Program Description:
There are few places in the world as fascinating as Florence. Students who choose to study abroad in Italy experience the best of all worlds. Its cradle of the Renaissance gives students the truly unique opportunity to study in a city alive with history, culture and art – and home to monumental museums, palaces and churches. Florence offers students the possibility to see world class operas, concerts, art exhibits and festivals that normally can be seen only in a larger city, all while holding on to its quaint Italian charm. The city is the students' classroom. Its rich history and culture are brought to life as students study first hand the works of masters who shaped Western culture, such as Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo and Michelangelo. The study center, located in the 15th-century Alessandri Palace, is just a short stroll from the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, and the world renowned Uffizi Gallery. Students will study in a beautiful Renaissance palace which has facilities equipped with modern comforts and technology.

The Broad Curriculum program gives students the opportunity to earn credits in general requirements and elective courses while living abroad. Florence has the added benefit of being centrally located which allows easy travel to many other famous and historically significant cities and regions in Italy. On program-coordinated day trips, students will be shown the artistic and historical treasures of Ravenna, Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza and Volterra. Overnight weekend group trips bring students to cities such as Venice and Rome. During spring and fall terms, students have a 10-day mid-term break for extended personal travel.
