Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

15 semester credits

In this traveling study abroad program, students spend one month each in three of Lorenzo de’ Medici – The Italian International Institute’s (LdM) four locations, and follow a structured program of five 3-credit courses, which together focus on interesting issues that intersect with the broader experience of Italy. In the spring, the program finishes in Venice and in the fall, it finishes in Florence. Classes meet every day Monday through Thursday for two and a half hours each, providing a total of 45 contact hours per course.

TUSCANIA

In Tuscania, students take an Italian language course (all levels available), and Italian Regional Food from a Cultural Perspective, a course with hands-on learning that situates Italian gastronomy and cuisine within its geographical and social contexts.

ROME

In Rome, the course on Intercultural Communication uses the city as a laboratory to study relations between cultures. The physical and conceptual imprint of Ancient Roman civilization on the capital, and on the nation of Italy itself, are pursued in the second course.

FLORENCE

When the Three Cities experience culminates in Florence, students will explore first-hand and analyze the “Made in Italy” phenomenon, that is both country-specific and has global impact.

VENICE

When the Three Cities experience culminates in Venice, students choose one additional 3-credit course, Venice and the East, which explores the city’s rich cultural and commercial ties with Asia, and then continue with language instruction.

TRANSCRIPTS

Students receive transcripts from U.S.-accredited Marist College for courses taken at LdM. Marist College is a four-year, fully accredited U.S. college in Poughkeepsie, New York.
