Psychological Sciences

Kent State’s Department of Psychological Sciences “Destination Florence” Program offers a unique opportunity for psychology majors from the Class of 2021, 2022, and 2023 to follow a track that will allow students to spend the Fall or Spring semester semester of their 2nd year studying in Florence, Italy. Now more than ever, students of psychology are encouraged to study abroad in support of their academic and professional goals!

Applying to this exclusive and prestigious program makes it possible for students to take a series of sequenced courses for the Fall and Spring of their 1st year at Kent State that will allow for them to participate in the Florence semester program in the Spring or Fall semester of their 2nd year. The courses that you will take in each semester, prior to your Florence Semester, will keep you on track in your major. You will enroll in these courses after meeting with your academic advisor. 

Successful applicants to the Psychological Sciences "Destination Florence" Program may be eligible to receive scholarship money each semester if they maintain enrollment in this program. The total earned scholarship amount will be up to $1, 500. This total amount will be awarded in a lump sum after enrolling in courses for the selected Florence semester abroad.
