Bachelor's and Master's Programs

Florence Academic Calendar

Join IAU for a semester, academic year, or summer in Florence, Italy! Studying abroad along the Mediterranean offers students a wide range of liberal arts and region-specific courses in English or Italian, the opportunity to participate in for-credit internships, and access to cultural and academic field studies and excursions.

A note to students: IAU advises that students do not make any travel arrangements prior to the first week of classes. Field studies and course excursions can be scheduled during weekends and breaks, so IAU recommends not purchasing any tickets or scheduling any travel until after learning of course requirements on-site.
