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 in our programs will have the opportunity to earn UGA credit while enjoying 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.

Fall 2017 Participant
Amazing opportunity to experience a Tuscan lifestyle, find your own style of art, and make once in a lifetime friendships.

Caleb Andrew Craig, Fall 2017 Participant
The sites we visited were tied directly to our studio and art history courses. We learned about the techniques, philosophy, and history of Italian art at the time of the Renaissance, and by visiting these and older works, we were able to absorb skills and perspectives in the present.

This program allowed me to try things that I wouldn't have been exposed to otherwise. I was able to take courses outside of my major and explore my more artistic side.
