About the Program

Spend 13-weeks in birthplace of the Renaissance, studying courses in Journalism/Media, Art, English, and/or Math. The city will become your classroom when on a given afternoon you may stroll with faculty and classmates through the streets of Florence to admire the architecture of Giotto and the Baroque sculptures adorning the fountains of the city, linger at the Uffizi Gallery with its vast collection of painting and sculpture, view the magnificent Santa Croce where Galileo, Michelangelo, and Machiavelli are buried, discuss art with Florentine painters in their studios, explore the book shops near Via Cavour, and visit one of the most traditional spots in Florence - the Ponte Vecchio, a 14th century bridge spanning the River Arno.

The Florence program is administered in partnership with the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS).

Minimum participation requirements and general Los Rios study abroad information can be found on the Los Rios study abroad website.
