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.


2020 Course Offerings: Terry Business & Culture (6 credit hours)

INTB 5100 – Special Topics in International Business (3 credit hours)
ROML 3000 – Italian Culture (taught in English) (3 credit hours)

Kory Patrick Gildea, Maymester 2017 Participant
Cortona was home and most all of our favorites, but each excursion was great for different reasons

Maymester 2017 Participant
"The opportunity to take part in the UGA Cortona Terry Program is one that will define my experience as a student. The most valuable thing I did during my time in Italy was commit myself to making mistakes through immersion in the Italian Culture. In making those mistakes, whether they were relationally, academically, or personally, I learned more about myself and serving my peers on the trip than I could have ever imagined.

Kyle Lanier Yeargin, Maymester 2017 Participant
The business visits were great ways to meet people in Cortona and the cities we visited and learn about business operations in Italy.

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
The International Business class was really helpful for me because it allowed me firsthand looks into the lives of Italian business owners and employees and how they handle work-life balance so much differently from Americans. Because my goal is to become an Industrial-Organizational Psychologist and to improve the work environment for employees and businesses in a variety of aspects, I feel that the opportunity to see how another country, with significantly higher reports of life satisfaction and job satisfaction, balanced life and work. In the future, I will be able to look back on this experience to pull the traditional work-life ideals of Italy and put a modern, innovative spin on them to better the work lives of Americans.
