Studying abroad is an experience that broadens our knowledge and our spirit. For more than 2500 years, Sicily has shared its spirit with travellers from many lands. Situated in the center of the Mediterranean, Sicily has served as a meeting place and a bridge for three continents, each of which has contributed to Sicily's unique history and culture. There are few other places which have been impacted by as great a number of civilizations: the Sicani, the Sicilians, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Normans, the Spaniards - all influenced the vibrant Sicilian culture. Our study abroad programs in Sicily reflect Sicily's magnificently rich 2500 years of knowledge, poetry, art and traditions.
This webpage has been especially developed for U.S. University students who want to learn Italian in Italy and attend a study abroad program in Italy, and particularly in Sicily, and have their independent studies for Italian language and culture in Italy granted academic credits.
Students attending U.S. Universities and enrolled in our short-term Italian language programs and full-immersion programs, wanting to get academic credits for their study abroad in Italy program, can have their Italian language courses, Italian history courses, Italian art history courses reviewed for college and academic credits.
Each U.S. University has its unique procedures for approval of independent course work completed by its students in programs abroad so it is vital that students follow their university guidelines.
Since each university also has its own regimen of determining numbers of credits earned for courses taken, students registering to earn academic credits at their universities for their study abroad Italian language and culture courses taken at our Center for Italian Studies are advised to follow the following procedures:
