Italian Programs

Experience the beauty & complexity of Italian culture

When you have the opportunity to study in Italy, you can immerse yourself in its enormous contributions to knowledge, humanism, and exploration. From the expansion of the Roman Empire to the spread of the Renaissance and Christianity, Italy’s scientific, artistic, and social contributions reverberate throughout the world.

Steeped in history and sharing open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino, and Vatican City, Italy represents the intersection of a wide variety of peoples and cultures. Today, it is the fifth-most visited country, home to 54 World Heritage Sites—the most in the world.

Whether you spend an academic year, a semester, or a summer in Italy, you will find support for an invaluable time abroad.
