Study Abroad in Florence

"Florence was the absolute best thing that could have happened to my college career. Studying abroad revolutionizes your entire perspective of the world and those who live in it. It seems obvious looking back now, but this experience will alter your education, relationships, career, and goals: all for the better." (—Madeline)

If you are hoping to study abroad in Florence during the summer, you can learn more about the Summer Institute.

Dr. Jen Taber will be teaching a summer 2023 course called, "Emotion, Culture and Health" at the Florence Summer Institute. 

Our department is holding two meetings for interested students:

  • In person: Tuesday, Nov. 15th from 6:00-7:00pm in Kent Hall Room 101

  • Virtual: Wednesday, Nov. 30th from 7:30-8:30pm via Microsoft TEAMS link:

Important things:

1) Students can get/use financial aid and/or scholarships to cover costs
2) there are two sessions this summer (each 4 weeks), the psychology course (taught by Dr. Taber) is in the second session in July – students can go to either or both sessions
3) there are courses in many departments and often of interest to our students, including courses that help to meet general BA/BS requirements.

Dr. Jen Taber will be at the meetings to answer any questions that you may have!

It is also possible to study psychology in Florence for a full semester.
