About

Experience Italian life and culture, past and present, in the beautiful and lively city of Florence. Famous for its Renaissance legacy, Florence is a thriving city with a fascinating mix of historic and contemporary culture. Buses, taxis, and mopeds drive within feet of the Duomo, Florence's magnificent cathedral; chic shops and elegant restaurants line the charming avenues; historic piazzas, ringed with outdoor cafés, host performance artists and flea markets. Enjoy the region's mild climate and world-famous cuisine in one of Europe's most beautiful cities.

Take classes in art, art history, business, Italian language, history, sociology, psychology, photography, and retail design. Attend class in the Oltrarno neighborhood, on the south side of the Arno river, in the Piazza Santo Spirito, which is home to one of Florence’s best-known basilicas—Santa Maria del Santo Spirito. This neighborhood is within easy walking distance of major monuments and museums. The area around Piazza Santo Spirito is still very much inhabited by Florentines and full of artisans, artists, galleries, trattorie, and antique shops, which provide a unique atmosphere. You can join sport teams, take part in a language exchange, volunteer, or participate in student groups.

Housing & Meals

Homestay

Students choosing to live with a host family will experience true Florentine life. You will have a furnished bedroom in an Italian home with some meals included. A homestay offers a great opportunity to excel in your Italian language ability and live and learn with Florentines, who can give you a glimpse into true Italian life.

Apartment

Students choosing an apartment will be housed with other study abroad students on the program. You will live in a furnished student apartment with two to four bedrooms and will be responsible for your own meals.

Excursions

In addition to exploring Florence all students participate in a 5-day study tour to Sicily. This study tour includes intensive language study, historical tours, guest lectures and a visit to Mount Etna. 

All students will have the opportunity to experience Italian host families through a hosted evening dinner with an Italian family.

Flight

The Learning Abroad Center works with Village Travel, a local travel agency, to arrange a coordinated flight for program participants. The flight is optional, and is arranged for those who want to fly with other program participants. Group flight information is typically available by the program application deadline, if not before.

If you take the group flight, or are able to arrive before the group flight and wait, our staff will meet you at the airport and bring you to your housing at no added cost. If you do not take the group flight, you will need to make your own way to the ACCENT center upon arrival. Specific arrival instructions will be sent out prior to your departure.

For immigration purposes, you should purchase a round-trip ticket, since you must be able to show your entry and exit dates from Italy.

Traveling abroad has always been, in fact, an experience of enrichment, enhancement and transformation of a traveler’s identity and intimate self. Starting from this assumption, this Creative Writing course will use the narrative strategies offered by modern and contemporary autobiography to draw inspiration from the students’ Italian and European travel experience. At the same time a ‘classic’ field in literature and a flourishing contemporary trend, the genre of autobiography defies categories and allows to experiment with innovative forms - from diary to travelogue, from literary nonfiction to the so-called “autofiction” – that are also currently evolving under the influence of the social networks and the possibilities of augmented experience offered by the web.

Internships

Academic internships are available and are ideal for becoming more immersed in Italian culture while gaining work experience. Previous Italian language is not required, but more opportunities are available for students with a background in the language. Interested students should complete the internship application materials on the application checklist. You can expect to work about 8-12 hours per week, and will earn 3 credits through your time at the internship combined with the Internships in Florence: A Comparative Approach to the Italian Workforce course. 

After being accepted into the program, internship materials will be sent to our on-site staff to begin the placement process. Because Italians put a strong emphasis on in-person communication, a majority of the placements will be secured after the students arrive in Florence and interview with their prospective employer. A majority of semester students can expect to start their internship by the second or third week of classes.

Past internships have been identified in the fields listed below, but this is not a complete list. If you do not see a field that you are interested in, inquire at the Learning Abroad Center about the possibility of doing an internship in that field.
