Program Overview A unique combination of courses is being offered at a unique location. University of Genoa in Genoa, Italy, one of the largest universities in Italy with 40,000 students, will be our host institute. Genoa, perched on the cusp of northern Mediterranean, is rich in history, culture, science and philosophical traditions, and is an ideal location for this study abroad program.

With Genoa as the base, we will explore Italy through industrial and exploratory tours to Florence, Venice, and Milan.
