Arts and Sciences in Italy
Spring Semester 2019
This semester-long program will be carried out in conjunction with the Accademia Europea di Firenze (AEF), an international school of liberal and performing arts and Italian studies. Students will be accompanied by a Western New England faculty member and will take at least two regular University courses in addition to AEF course offerings. The program also includes a variety of field trips around Italy.
No language skills required.
Students will take a full semester of coursework (15-17 cr.) while in Italy, consisting of two three-credit courses from Western New England faculty, and 2-3 courses from AEF. AEF courses may be used to satisfy any applicable Western New England requirements, and all course credits will automatically be transferred.
