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)

Loved the Cortonese.

Maymester 2016 Participant
Im a senior at UGA, and going to Cortona to study abroad was by far the best experience of my college career. I am so grateful to have this experience and I hope that students can enjoy this program for many years to come!

Testimonial:
I am now planning to travel to other countries in the years to come, as I now have the taste for traveling abroad. Also I intend on moving back to Italy for a period of time during my life when I finish school. Ive fallen in love with the country and I want to experience more for a longer period of time. I even have pulled up veterinary medicine schools in Italy that I may apply to, so that is a possibility as well. Also it is now a new personal goal to become fluent in Italian; I'm taking an introductory course in the fall to start off. This trip truly altered the course of my life and I'm so glad I had to opportunity to go on this amazing study abroad.
