Studying abroad in Florence has been my favorite educational experience! I highly recommend it. The opportunity to regularly visit some of the best museums on the planet, and photograph the people and places of Florence, have enriched me far beyond my education.

I learned a lot about myself and how I fit in with the world. I realized the huge differences between America and the rest of the world and what I think on these issues. It changed my life.

Students on this program can choose to study at either Florence University of the Arts (FUA) or Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA).
FUA is one of the most prestigious schools in Florence. Students are able to choose from a wide variety of courses offered by the university and its schools. From the heart of the historic center of Florence, the program challenges and shapes inquisitive minds that wish to study fine arts and humanities with innovative approaches. Students may also opt to do a non-credit or for-credit internship during the summer.
SRISA is a leading international art and design school in Italy. Students at SRISA are provided with opportunities for artistic, academic, and personal growth in an environment that will develop their understanding of what it means to be part of a dynamic artistic and academic community influenced by an international setting. In addition to studying in Florence, students will travel to Rome.
Students can also select from a 3, 6, 9 or 12-week version of the program.
