Summer & Fall 2021 Updates

As we look ahead with optimism to welcome students onsite for summer & fall programs, we’re continuously assessing all relevant information with the lens that this is an evolving situation. Presently, the majority of CEA’s programs are open for both upcoming terms with only a few cancellations due to decisions made by local partner institutions. We commit to making any necessary program cancellations in a timely manner to allow students time to pursue other summer opportunities. To see a list of open programs please click here.

New Virtual Study & Internship Program
This 8-week summer program combines a personalized internship placement with the asynchronous, online course, "Creating Your Startup." Our goal with this program is to provide students with a holistic experience that brings theory into practice in the start-up world. Students will stay local while learning from industry leaders from around the world and growing their global network. Please refer to the Virtual: Design & Innovation program page for more program details.

Top 5 Things to Do in Tuscany

While Italy has temporarily restricted travel outside the state of residence in response to COVID-19, we know there’s so much to see in each region of Italy that our students will have no problem finding adventure and rich cultural opportunities during their program. To make it easier for students heading to Florence this summer or fall, we compiled a "Top 5 Things to Do in Tuscany” list to give them a head start!
