Athena Study Abroad in Florence, Italy

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Florence is an inspiring city rich in cultural history. Studying in Florence, Italy offers students a wide array of classes, whether they would like to study major or general education classes. Outside of the classroom, students can participate in clubs like the dance, cinema, sport, or volunteer clubs, to name a few. Students can choose between apartments or home stay, for an even more culturally immersed experience. Either way, students will have easy access both to the city center and school, and transportation options so that they can travel to the countryside and beyond to the rest of Europe in their free time.


A few field trips are included in the cost of the program. Some destinations could be Venice, the Alps, the French Riviera, Milan, Rome, Cinque Terre, Pompeii, Arezzo, or Switzerland.
There are specialized options available for students other than taking a basic term. Special terms include a Business semester that is AACSB accredited, an International Conflict Transformation semester where students are certified in non-violent conflict resolution, an Intensive Language semester where students can quickly become fluent in Italian, and a summer program where students devote their time to restoring artwork.
