About the Program

Designed for both art and non-art majors, this program challenges you to transform your Italian experience into art. Choose from printmaking, fashion design, painting, drawing, and more; close instruction by practicing artists encourage your contemporary work in response to Florentine traditions. Italy’s history, culture, and art are typical themes of complementary elective courses. Studio art courses are taught at our partner institution, Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA). Semester students choose to attend elective courses at SRISA or at both SRISA and the CEA Florence Center; over the summer you will take courses only at SRISA. At the end of your program, you will exhibit your work at SRISA’s highly visible art gallery.

Our partner university, Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA), is one of Florence’s leading schools in studio art and design for English-speakers. Professors of art practice in their field, and will instruct you with up-to-date methods, techniques, and ideas. Attend class at SRISA’s facilities near the historic convent of San Marco, where you’ll benefit from easy access to Florence’s main attractions and feel like part of a Florentine neighborhood.

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. Please note that coursework for the Virtual Internship program will take place remotely.

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.          

Please note that housing is not included in Virtual Internship programs.

Program Structure

Choose to take courses at both the CEA Florence Center and SRISA, our partner institution, or take all your courses at SRISA.

By selecting our CEA & SRISA Hybrid program, you choose to take courses at both institutions. You’ll enroll in 1 CEA language course, 1-2 SRISA studio art courses, and 1-3 CEA elective courses.

By selecting our SRISA-Only program, you choose to take courses exclusively at SRISA. You’ll enroll in 1 SRISA language course, 1-3 SRISA studio art courses, and 1-3 SRISA electives.

CEA and SRISA language courses meet for 60 contact hours/4 credits; CEA and SRISA elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits; and SRISA studio art courses meet for 45-90 contact hours/3 credits.   

Each semester, you may earn a total of up to 16 credits (up to 240 contact hours). Over an academic year, you may earn a total of 26-32 credits (up to 480 contact hours). 

CEA language courses meet 4 times per week, Monday-Thursday. Elective courses generally meet 2 times per week, Monday-Thursday; some SRISA classes may only meet once per week. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. 

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and indicate your estimated Italian language level. After you arrive in Florence, you'll take a language placement exam to determine final placement. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability.  It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Italy.

Please note that SRISA is affiliated with a School of Record, Maryville University in St. Louis, which grants credit for courses successfully completed at SRISA. As such, course details on the CEA website include both Maryville University and SRISA course information, including course code, subject area and course level, as recommended by each institution.

While CEA recommends using the Maryville University course code designations and transcript for credit transfer purposes, it is at the discretion of your home institution to determine the transfer of credit for SRISA courses. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
