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.


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

Summer 2022 Participant
Cortona was a life changing experience. The art we were able to see in person was unbelievable! The pace of life and Italian culture was so incredible to experience and to build so many friendships with other UGA students. It was incredible!

Summer 2019 Participant
When do you get another chance to live in another country and make art for few months? Cortona is a quaint hillside town that quickly becomes home. It offers an opportunity to see iconic Italian art you learn about in art history and you get to see them while faculty share their knowledge.

Summer 2017 Participant
The faculty were fantastic, I learned so much not only from the professors who's classes I was taking, but others as well.

Experiencing the culture and life style of a place worlds apart from what I know. Gaining gat experience has allowed me to reflect on my own life style and make changes that I feel will have a huge impact on my quality of life.
