Florence Summer Program

The Florence Study Abroad Program takes students to the heart of the Renaissance in Florence, Italy. From Dante's house to Brunelleschi's architectural marvels to the sculpted masterpieces of Michelangelo, the sights, sounds, and smells of Florence will become our classroom. Spreading out from Florence, we will also foray into the remote past, exploring Tuscany's beginning under the famed Etruscans. We will survey, first hand, the artistic, architectural, and literary achievements of Italy's first civilizations, its rise to glory under Rome, its intriguing medieval history, and its cultural flowering as the center of the Renaissance.

All students will also participate in a survival Italian course consisting of 3 hours per week intended to help better navigate the city and culture.​
