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.

Program Reviews:
Laura Anne Crawford, Maymester 2016 Participant
If you've ever dreamed of living in Italy, just do it. This is one of the best programs UGA has to offer. Maya Angelou once said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Cortona was like a village out of a fairy tale and I will never forget the vibrancy of the valley, the food, or the people.

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.

I loved all the faculty for this program. Everyone was very kind, very helpful, and very knowledgeable.

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