 Study Abroad in Italy


Birthplace of the Renaissance. Cultural mecca. Pizza and gelato paradise. The attractions are endless when it comes to Italy. Discover la dolce vita as you stroll through miles of elegant porticos and famous food markets of Bologna, suit up to learn the business side of Milan’s fashion runways and high-end commerce, visit Rome’s monumental sights clothed in marble, or meet with local artisans in Florence.

With a choice of four magnificent locations, you can meet a number of academic and personal goals. Take courses to fulfill major or GE/breadth requirements, hone your Italian language skills or explore internships in such areas as art history, public health, education or film. Outside of class, UCEAP hosts lectures and cultural events, cooking classes, day trips, volunteer options and conversation exchanges to help you acclimate to Italian life.
