Academics in Prato

The Tuscany Campus is administered entirely by the University of New Haven. Each semester students take a standard five-course load, including an Italian language course. Faculty at the Tuscany campus are a combination of UNH Faculty sent from the home campus and locally hired faculty. It is important to remember that the course offerings at the Tuscany Campus will change from semester to semester. Essential courses not available in Prato may be taken online.
