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.



Science & Art History Maymester - 2018 Courses: (7 credit hours)

BCMB 3433 – Biology for Medicine (4 credit hours)
ARHI 2121 – Intro to Italian Art (3 credit hours)

Testimonial:
Studying in Cortona was the best experience I have had thus far at UGA. I was a little nervous at first because I didn't know many people on the trip, but I quickly made new friends and had the time of my life. Definitely go on this program! You will not regret it. Be prepared to have the best month of your life in the most beautiful country in the world.
