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.

THEA 5590/7560 - Special Project in Theatre-Drama (3 credits) / Graduate Projects in Theatre-Drama (3 credits)

Program Reviews:
Laura Anne Crawford, Maymester 2016 Participant
My favorite part of my housing experience in Cortona was probably washing my clothes in our flat's bathtub and hanging them up to dry on clotheslines outside. I felt like this program transported me to a whole new world.

Laura Anne Crawford, Maymester 2016 Participant
The entirety of this program was spent finding new ways to enjoy, experience, and learn about Italian culture. I never felt as if the workload of this program was too much to bear, or took away from my experience abroad. It was a perfect compliment.

Maymester 2016 Participant
This trip is the only way to travel Italy! What a great deal for everything we did!

I learned how to adapt and to see myself how others might see me.
