Program Description:

The course schedule at the University of Florence (UF) includes a variety of courses in economics and political science offered in English, which provides an exciting opportunity for Syracuse Florence students who are not proficient in Italian language to take a class with Italian students. These classes will meet at UF, an approximate 20-30 minute commute from the Syracuse Florence campus. It is typical for students to enroll in 1-2 courses at the University of Florence and 2-4 courses at the Syracuse Center, allowing you to remain an active part of the Syracuse Florence student body. All students must also enroll in an Italian language course.

This fall-only program may require students to stay in Florence beyond the end date of the Syracuse Florence Center program. Students enrolling in UF classes may be billed an additional housing cost if the UF calendar requires students to remain in Florence beyond the Center's end date.

Available Courses

The following  courses have been pre-approved for Syracuse University credit. These courses are subject to change and not all will be offered every fall.  Housing

Undergraduate students live with Italian hosts. Homestays allow students to practice Italian learned in class and to gain insight into Italian culture and lifestyle. Hosts are carefully screened and most have hosted Syracuse students for many semesters. Hosts represent all walks of life and professions: some are large families, some are retired couples, some are divorced or single parents, some are young couples. Placements are arranged by the housing coordinator in Florence, based on information you provide about your preferences and special needs. Continental breakfast (seven days a week) and evening meals (five days a week) are included in the program fee when you live with a host.

Program Cost

The cost of the Syracuse Florence program includes Syracuse tuition and a program fee. Financial aid is available. For a complete breakdown of costs, we have prepared a budget sheet (Florence Budget 2019-20.pdf) for students and their families. The academic calendars at foreign universities may differ from the Syracuse Center academic calendar and may require additional housing days based on the student's registration. This billing may occur after the program has begun.
