Studying abroad in Italy is a great opportunity for students to have a first-hand experience absorbing the Tuscan culture. Volterra, Italy is home to many local business organizations that offered our students insight on their best business practices. Students are granted the opportunity to tour businesses, sample food in the agritourism industry, and learn more about Italian imports. In addition, students will be able to participate in excursions to Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca, Cinque Terre and more. Training and pre-departure meetings will be conducted to adequately prepare our students. Students will earn six hours of academic credit hours while gaining valuable career skills.
