Spring 2022 – On-site Programs at LdM Florence and Tuscania

During Spring 2022, on-site courses will be available at LdM Florence and LdM Tuscania. From semester programs to certificate programs, students can gain knowledge and achieve personal growth while engaging with peers from across the globe.

Studying Abroad at LdM Florence and at LdM Tuscania means students have a distinctive opportunity to learn both inside and outside of the classroom, exploring and utilizing the resources of the host city, its art, architecture, natural environment, and monuments as part of a theoretical and practical education. They will be immersed in the Italian culture while getting to know and appreciate Italy’s rich history and people. LdM helps students strike a balance between personal discovery by living and learning about a new culture, and the rigorous coursework that is necessary for academic growth.

For the A.Y. 2021-2022, Italian Language and Culture courses are optional. The Academic Semester allows for a combination of 4 courses plus one Italian Language and Culture class, or 5 academic courses without the language component. Students enrolling in an ITL/ITC course will benefit from the LdM La Dolce Vita grant.
