Italians value taste and aesthetics, and hold their food, art, design, and fashion to long-held high standards. This program emphasizes key concepts such as beauty, quality, and craftsmanship through a comprehensive and practical examination of the cultural, economic, historical, and linguistic factors that contribute to the "Italian style." Courses on contemporary topics will examine the “Made in Italy” label that industries proudly thrive on, which adds value to one-of-a-kind items in a mass-produced world. Skill, technique, and sophistication will characterize your Italian summer experience.

The CEA Florence Center offers a variety of courses that allow you to explore all that Florence has to offer, with your professors as guides. Classes are small, taught in English, and take full advantage of the city just beyond our doors. Experiential learning opportunities outside the classroom are plentiful and bring lessons to life, exposing you to new perspectives and starting you on your journey toward global citizenship.
When you study abroad in Florence, you can choose CEA Housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
Life-Long Benefits I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
