Students on the 2014 Florence summer program study under the direction and instruction of College of William & Mary faculty in this one-month intensive Italian program. All students earn a total of 7 credits while in Florence, 4 credits of Italian language and  3 credits of either Florentine Renaissance Art or Politics of the Euro, both taught in English. All courses are held at LinguaViva Language Institute, which is minutes away from the historic center of Florence. Grades will appear on students’ William & Mary transcripts and will be included in GPA calculations.

Florence is known for its natural beauty, abundance of art and architecture from the Renaissance period, and for once being the home of Dante and Michelangelo. Students will experience the city as locals might by participating in homestays during this program. Students will live with Florentine families in double rooms, and take breakfast and dinner with their families as well.

Throughout the program students will have the opportunity to explore other Italian cities. In the past, some excursions have included Rome, Venice, Cinque Terre, and Chianti country. All excursions include transportation, lodging on overnight excursions, and some meals.

The Reves Center advisor for the Florence summer program is Molly DeStafney, mldestafney@wm.edu.
