Since 1970, the UGA Cortona Program, located in rolling hills of Tuscany, Italy, has been a leader in education abroad. It is UGA's oldest study abroad program calling the town of Cortona home for nearly 50 years. Today, UGA Cortona offers a variety of core courses including English, Psychology, Art History, Women's Studies, Photography, Science, and Business. This is in addition to an extensive list of beginning, intermediate and advanced-level Studio Art courses which makes up the bulk of our course offerings. No knowledge of the Italian Language is necessary; however, a number of our UGA Cortona Programs do offer ITAL courses. All students who participate on our programs will have the opportunity to earn UGA credit while enjoying the beautiful Tuscany, along with excursions to other Italian cities.  
 
There are many general study abroad scholarships available, including substantial need-based program-specific scholarships.


For full program details, please view the UGA Cortona website.

Emily Nicole Courson, Maymester 2019 Participant
There is no place better to study wine than in the heart of Tuscany!

Devyn Renee Malinzak, Maymester 2019 Participant
From trellis systems to fermentation process, this program will give you complete insight on the complexity of wine making. I enjoyed learning about the intricacy of each wine bottle and the amount of work put into a good glass of wine. I gained greater appreciation for the horticulture and food science aspects of viticulture and enology. This program enabled me to gain more knowledge on grapes growing and wine production in different regions of the world. I am excited to use this unique education in the professional world and in future gardening endeavors.
