About

This Global Learning Semesters program is hosted by the School of Food and Wine Studies of the Florence University of the Arts, one of the most prestigious schools in Florence. Students will be able to choose from a wide variety of courses offered by the School. The program provides a professional and academic environment in which students gain expertise in the areas of culinary arts and wine studies. It goes beyond classroom learning by promoting student interaction with the convergence of the multicultural societies in the city of Florence, achieved by unique practical experiences in direct contact with the various service areas and professional figures who operate in these spheres. It further promotes student knowledge and ability to recognize and actively participate in the conservation of the Florentine cultural and economic heritage, while preparing students for careers in a rapidly developing industry that encompasses a wide range of exciting and ever-evolving fields. 

Students may opt for a non-credit or for-credit internship.

In addition to studying in Florence, students will travel to Rome, Siena, Venice and Verona.
