Study Abroad Programs
LdM’s study abroad students challenge their thinking and expand their perspective on a global level while learning both inside and outside the classroom. Students have the opportunity to explore and utilize the resources of the city – including its art, architecture, and cultural history – as part of their educational development.
Semester or year-long programs foster awareness and understanding of the course subjects and are specifically designed for students who want to live an immersive experience. A mandatory Italian language component is available at different degrees of intensity, depending on the students’ level and interest in developing language skills.
The three-week-long January Intersession courses, taught in English except for Italian language courses, afford the opportunity for undergraduates, independent students, and adult students to study abroad in Florence.<
The Summer Programs comprise month-long courses in June and July and are well-suited for both undergraduate students who want to study abroad and earn academic credit, as well as for independent students seeking a meaningful educational experience. The summer months offer a variety of cultural and artistic events that take place in and around the LdM site, enriching the student’s didactic path.
The LdM Certificate Programs develop student creativity, artistic talent, and technical skills within structured plans of study. LdM offers semester, one-year, and two-year Certificates that combine a strong theoretical base with practical work in order to reach professional goals.
The Three Cities Program, available in the locations of Florence, Rome and Tuscania both during the Fall and Spring Semester, is a semester-long study abroad experience that exposes students to the distinctive character and cultural heritage that each location adds to modern Italy.
