I gained Italian fluency and by the end was extremely proud of my ability to navigate on my own in and outside the city. I made personal connections that have continued to stay with me, and I had a very rewarding academic experience. - Oberlin College View Entire Review

About

Florence is the embodiment of the Renaissance, which began in Tuscany during the fourteenth century and continued to influence the region and ultimately the world for four hundred years. Now a bustling city filled with piazze, cafes, and museums, the culture of Florence is ideally suited for student life. And while Florence welcomes large numbers of international students each year, students at the School in Italy are noteworthy for their commitment to cultural immersion.

The program in Florence has three tracks of study, a Beginner level, an Intermediate Level, and an Advanced level. Outside of the classroom, the Language Pledge is in effect for maximum Italian exposure. 

Depending on language proficiency and track level, students may take courses at the Middlebury Sede in the heart of the city and may take courses at one of our partner institutions: the Università degli Studi di Firenze or the Accademia di Belle Arti, where they have the opportunity to experience firsthand the life of Italian students. They also live in a homestay or in an apartment with Italian roommates, which allows them access into the life of local families or peers.
