Overview

Opportunity Description

The Cornell Summer Program in Turin

This three- or six- credit course is designed for students who want to learn about European politics and policy debates and to immerse themselves in a city rich with history and culture.

The ancient city of Turin, nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, was the previous seat of the Italian monarchy and the first capital of modern Italy. Historically and today, the city has served as the focal point of many important social and political movements. 

Cornell in Turin includes two consecutive interdisciplinary courses, GOVT 3323 European Politics and PAM 3620 Population Controversies in Europe and the U.S. Students may choose to enroll in one or both of these courses. Both are taught by Cornell faculty and hosted at the Einaudi Foundation in the majestic Palazzo d'Azeglio in downtown Turin. The program also features a number of extracurricular activities and excursions.
