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.

Josephine Sierra Gabel, Fall 2018 Participant
I followed in my mom's footsteps and went on this program. It was everything she ever told me it was, if not better. Its a chance of a life time

Michael Aaron Asbeury, Fall 2019 Participant
If you want to become a better you, enroll in the Cortona Program!

Fall 2021 Participant
Go out and experience as much as possible why you are there and appreciate everything while you are there. I was never once homesick and when it is all over you will reminisce and wish you were still in you’re second home in cortona.

This experience taught me I want to focus my future more in the art direction. It also introduced me to people I would never have met before.
