CJC Study Abroad 2018: Italy

It is with great pride that I share your college’s destination for the 2018 study abroad program: Italy.  This beautiful city will serve as home while you explore other amazing locations, including Rome, Venice, Sienna, Sorrento, Capri, and more.  Explore the ruins of Pompeii and then climb the volcano that destroyed this remarkably preserved Roman city.  Take day trips to Pisa, Cinque Terre, the Amalfi coast.  Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, visit the Roman Colosseum, or witness the beauty of the David at the Academia.  Our Italy program is one of the most popular that we offer and this year promises to be our best yet.

The college will offer classes useful for all four majors.  Any UF student can go and take up to six credits during our four week program.  Courses will be available for both undergrads and graduate students.  Participation also satisfies UF’s residency requirement.

What to expect:

  1. In October we will have an orientation meeting where we will discuss the firm itinerary and the cost of the program
  2. The day after the meeting we will open for applications on a first-come, first served basis.  Students have a reserved spot when they’ve completed all applications and made a non-refundable deposit.  The program typically fills within a week.
  3.  In spring students will receive three orientations and be registered for their classes.
  4. We will leave the first week of May and return by the end of the month or the first two days of June.
