A Study Abroad in Italy places you in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea and into a vibrant country, rich in history, art, architecture, culture and cuisine. When you study in a foreign country, it gives you a sense of discovery, but not in the same way as being a tourist. When studying abroad in Italy, first of all, you are stepping out of your comfort zone. Second, you are taking in your surroundings while cultivating friendships, settling into the ritual of attending classes, finding local places to eat and hang out as well as going on excursions and field trips. Whether you are interested in an Italian language immersion or another subject, studying in Italy warrants consideration for so many reasons.
