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)

Program Reviews:
Maymester 2017 Participant
It was surprising how quickly Cortona began to feel like home. It was a great place to learn about both Italian culture and business.
Ian Robert Thompson, Maymester 2017 Participant
The places we got to visit on our scheduled trips and our free day were some of the most incredible places I have ever seen.
Maymester 2017 Participant
The Terry Maymester in Cortona was incredible! It was my first time abroad and I can not think of a better way to do it! Cortona is so safe and the perfect place to study abroad. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Testimonial:
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
It was really awesome to be immersed in the Italian culture by being in such a small town in Italy. Cortona was amazing; the people were friendly, charming, and fun to be around. I enjoyed the contrast of Cortona with the larger cities like Florence and Rome. Being able to actually see ancient structures, exquisite architecture, and world-renowned pieces of art was absolutely incredible. This was an experience I will never forget.
