Academics in Tuscany
Spending a semester at the University’s campus in Tuscany, Italy, can greatly enhance our students’ educational experience. Regardless of your major, all students have the flexibility to take advantage of the opportunity to live and learn in Italy.
Students who are interested in studying at the University's campus in Italy are not required to have any prior knowledge of the Italian language. In fact, most students do not know any Italian before their study abroad experience.
At the Tuscany Campus, you’ll have access to a wide variety of resources to help you in your studies, both online and on-site.
Faculty at the Tuscany campus are a combination of University of New Haven professors who travel to Italy and locally hired faculty.
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. 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.
Students develop these critical competencies – and many more – while studying abroad at the University’s Tuscany Campus by building their intercultural communication skills and discovering how different cultures operate in academic and professional settings.
