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.

Spring 2020 Participant
While you are there don't let yourself start to take anything for granted. Hang on to the feelings of overwhelming amazement that are there from the first days you arrive. Be comfortable, but still let yourself see and experience new things to always be amazed.

Spring 2019 Participant
Italy is a gorgeous country full of incredible, people, towns, and art. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to be fully immersed in the art world. There is no better place to do it!

Carolina Gijon, Spring 2019 Participant
Go in with an open mind! Talk to the locals, be nice to the Angels, learn how to use to bus, go down into Camucia for Chinese food, ride the train to the lake. Have so much fun.

Testimonial:
The art classes I had in Cortona were the first I'd taken in college, so I really valued everything I learned. The most significant take-away, however, has to be the immersion in a completely different culture. I saw so many landmarks, cities, and works of art that I never thought I'd get to see, but I also loved getting to know Cortona and felt very lucky to be a temporary member of that community.
