Study Abroad Program Description

The program price includes tuition for one online course (worth 3 semester credits).

Each additional course in Florence will cost $1,395, while this cost will vary at the other locations.

The Italian Art & Culture Remote Learning program with Florence University of the Arts is more than learning about Florence from afar. It is about experiencing Florence as a world-renowned symbol of culture in a significant and compelling manner. The remote course offering aims to deeply engage learners through a well-structured exploration of Florence by providing students a meaningful and transportable vision of the city that ultimately helps to inform and positively influence their future experiences.

All courses take place within 3-week sessions and feature a hybrid format of asynchronous coursework with periodical live sessions with faculty. Please find a breakdown of courses offered and the dates within which the coursework must be completed in the Academic Information section.
