Benvenuti!
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.

Maymester 2016 Participant
The teachers made this experience a fantastic one. All of the professors were very kind and enjoyed teaching us the material

Cortona is the safest place ever

Maymester 2016 Participant
This will be the highlight of my college experience. I learned more about myself in the last 3 and a half weeks then I thought was possible.

Testimonial:
While I don't think I'll ever work in a field even related to viticulture or enology, I genuinely believe that the things I learned on this trip will follow me throughout life. I can use my knowledge as a tool for relating to and impressing people I may work with. Frankly I chose this trip purely due to personal interest rather than career pursuits, but I couldn't be more please with my experience. I recommend it to all who are interested in learned about Tuscan culture, wine, vines, or anything similar.
