CIEE Ferrara Liberal Arts
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.
This program is designed for students with 4 or more semesters of Italian language who want to be immersed in the culture of their host country by studying in a small Renaissance city. Students will improve their Italian language skills and take content courses in Italian.
