Students interested in the language, art, history and/or landscape of Italy have an opportunity to immerse themselves in it all with the W&M Florence summer study abroad program.
Students will be housed with Florentine families to foster a more authentic local experience. Host families will provide breakfast and dinner daily. Students will also have the opportunity to go on excursions to other Italian cities like Rome, Venice, or Cinque Terre.
The summer 2012 program is directed by Maurits van der Veen, W&M Assistant Professor of Government. Classes are conducted at the LinguaViva Language Institute near Florence’s historic center. In this intensive one month program students can earn seven credits total, three from Art History or European Political Systems, and four from Italian language courses. Coursework will count as W&M credit and grades.
