Language and Culture in Today’s Renaissance Florence

Florence, Italy

Arrive Date:  August 25, 2020    End Date:  December 12, 2020

Program Overview

During a semester-long full immersion experience in Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance and a vibrant center of innovation, we will walk every day on our way to school, internships, and community events where Dante and Machiavelli, Botticelli and Galileo used to walk and create the literary, political, artistic, and scientific contributions that made Italian culture so relevant in the world. Florence and Italy become our preferred classroom while we also satisfy a foreign language requirement. All courses include visits, from the Uffizi Museum to a Parmigiano-Reggiano producer in Parma, and from farmers’ markets to Cinque Terre.  Our multifaceted Florence experience will make us reflect on the relevance of multiculturalism and empower us to become problem solvers and bridge builders while exploring the beautiful cities and landscapes of Italy and Europe.
