Florence Highlights

Student Profile - Alyssa Liew
"In Florence, I learned how much I valued exploring new things, whether that be trying a panino place other than my one true love All’ Antico Vinaio or switching my study spot to the rooftop of the Oblate with a beautiful view of the Duomo."

Student Profile - Kirill Safin
"Studying Italian was made easy not only by the amazing professors, but also being in Italy itself, and even cooler -- classes in grocery stores and cafes! What a better way to learn a language? "

The Florence Program strives to turn the students into academic travelers (not passing tourists) who will leave the city having mastered first-hand a culture (the Renaissance) at the core of the historical and artistic development of the Western world, and having developed a deep fluency on Italy, the European Union and the Mediterranean today.
