School in Cortona
Each year, students from all Faculties and disciplines travel to Cortona, Italy and enrol in courses that take advantage of this unique Tuscan location. U of A professors conduct regular classroom lectures (in English) on diverse topics like Renaissance Art, Roman Civilization, Italian language and Political Science.
Instead of studying it in a textbook, students actually travel to see Michelangelo's David. Instead of learning Italian in a lab, the students live it. Studying at the School in Cortona is more than just attending lectures - it's about immersing yourself in a relevant cultural experience.
How does our program differ from other study abroad opportunities?
- The application process is simple.
- There are no transfer credit issues because you will be taking U of A courses registered on Beartracks. Obviously, this means they will also count in your GPA.
- The best part is that you will be earning U of A credit and also studying abroad, something that is especially critical (and sometimes impossible) if you already have transfer credit in your degree.
We are pleased to announce that the 2013/14 courses have been finalized. Please go to the Course Offerings link for further details.
You can pick up a copy of the Calendar at your Faculty office or in the pedway that connects HUB and Humanities. You can also see the online version.
