There is no better city in Spain to spend a summer in than Barcelona! It offers the rare combination of sophistication, vibrancy and culture along with unique architecture and the charm of a Mediterranean beach town. College is a time of growth and personal choice; why not get a head start? You’ll leave Barcelona and your unforgettable summer feeling more independent and better prepared for college while making great friends, seeing incredible sites and falling in love with Spain along the way.
Study and live this summer in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Florence, Italy. Filled with amazing art, world class restaurants and breathtaking scenery, Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. During your Major course, choose to learn Italian, create a digital photo portfolio, cook like an Italian chef or become next season’s Versace. Our afternoon Florence activity highlights enable you to discover the workplaces of famous artisans, visit the workshop of a leather designer and appreciate the role of food in Italian culture. Florence has changed very little from its inception; it is a small, largely pedestrian city, overflowing with culture, making it one of the preeminent destinations for study abroad. This program prepares you for the academic and personal challenges that come with entering college. When the two weeks are over, we promise that you will never want to leave!
