The Florence Summer Session allows you to customize your program according to your interests and desire for exploration. To enhance your learning experience, most courses feature field trips and excursions within Florence and to locations outside the city. Internships are also available.
Attend the world’s most famous classic film festival, Cinema Ritrovato, while immersing yourself in all aspects of film. This program is based on a total filmmaker/film studies approach in which you’ll study Italian film history, visual strategy, preproduction planning, and production. You’ll generate ideas based on the study of Italian filmmakers such as Rossellini, Zampa, Fellini, Bertolucci, and Antonioni and incorporate what you learn into your own worldview and filmmaking interests.
With Latin America as your study destination, you will visit countries that respresent much more than the origins of Western culture; they embody the diverse forms that this culture can adopt when it comes in contact with indigenous elements, many of which are still present today. Chile - a country that has recently attained one of the highest levels of economic and human development in Latin America - will be your base for exploration during this intellectual and academic journey. Note: At least three semesters of college-level Spanish are required for application to the program.
