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.


2018 Course Offerings: Terry Business & Culture (6 credit hours)

INTB 5100 – Special Topics in International Business (3 credit hours)
ROML 3000 – Italian Culture (taught in English) (3 credit hours)

I got this through my international business class and truly felt like I saw Cortona's culture.

Kory Patrick Gildea, Maymester 2017 Participant
I loved cortona! Great city, food, wine, and better people.

Kyle Lanier Yeargin, Maymester 2017 Participant
The business visits were great ways to meet people in Cortona and the cities we visited and learn about business operations in Italy.

Testimonial:
Definitely learning to see how different the business and social life is in Italy and also just all the people I got the opportunity to meet.
