CIEE Ferrara Language & Culture
The beautiful renaissance city of Ferrara is close to Bologna, midway between Venice and Florence, yet it is relatively unknown to tourists. Shaped over the centuries by the River Po, Ferrara was one of the centers of the Italian renaissance in the 15th and 16th centuries. Today, you can walk the city walls that surround Ferrara, ride a bicycle to class just like the locals, and visit Ferrara’s outstanding museums. The city is extremely safe, clean, and accessible, with a small-town feel yet boasts world-class art treasures and exhibits.
The University of Ferrara was founded in 1391. This program is designed for students with little or no Italian language background to study Italian language and culture through content courses taught in English and an intensive Italian language class. Eligible students may want to consider spending the spring semester in the Liberal Arts program in Ferrara.
