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.

Jillian Elizabeth Lauricella, Maymester 2019 Participant
What I have learned and gained from this program is not simply captured by my newfound understanding and appreciation of Italian culture and business, but it is in my refined palette from the exposure to fine Italian wines and new foods, my heart still bursting from the Sistine Chapel and cathedral visits, the luscious landscape and hills of Cortona still imprinted in my mind, and my friendships with fellow program participants and connections with local Italians that I will remember and cherish most.

Ryan T Muehlberger, Maymester 2019 Participant
This was my first time traveling abroad, and I could not have had a better experience. Cortona was such a fun town to explore and live in. I loved the excursions we went on, especially the trip to Florence. This trip was the perfect mix between studying and exploring Italy.

I feel like I really developed an understanding of the life of people in cortona. I love meeting local people and living in a small, less touristy town than many of the larger cities in Italy.
