Opportunity Description

Find Your Place in Florence

From Giotto to Gucci and all those in between, Florence has remained a perpetual fountain of creativity and intellectual thought.

What's Unique about this Opportunity?

At Syracuse Florence, students enroll in one of the following curricular options depending on academic focus and level of Italian language.

  • Florence Center
  • Florence Center & Intensive Language Program at the University of Florence
  • Florence Center: Studio Arts
  • Florence Center: Engineering

What is Unique about studying in Florence?

While you're studying in Florence, you'll live with Italian hosts. Time and again, Syracuse Abroad alumni say this is one of their fondest memories. Living with Florentines allows you to practice Italian learned in class and to gain insight into Italian culture and lifestyles. Your hosts represent all walks of life and professions: large families, retired couples, divorced or single parents, and young couple.

  1. For Cornell Approval, click on the "Apply" button on this webpage. Applications are approved by the Office of Global Learning on a rolling basis until the application deadline listed on this page.
  2. For Program Admission, complete an external application directly on the program’s webpage, using the link in the “Snapshot” section. (Note: This deadline may be in advance of the general Cornell deadline for approval. Many programs fill by rolling admission.)
