Florence Summer Institute

A month that will change the rest of your life...

Kent State Florence
Summer Institute 2014


  • The dates: May 29 through June 29  (depart the US May 29 and return to the US June 29)
  • The program: You'll select 2 courses from those offered, earning 6 or 7 credits depending on your choices. All courses are taught in English (in palaces in the heart of Florence), and meet Monday through Thursday, giving you long weekends for travel. Academic credit is awarded by Kent State University and easily transferable, so whether or not you're a Kent State student, you'll keep progressing toward your degree.
  • The life: Reside with other Kent State Florence students in fully furnished apartments (wireless internet included) within a short walk of your classes. Your program fee covers extracurricular activities including a day trip to Siena, cooking class, rafting on the Arno, an opera performance, a medieval rugby match, and more. Use your weekends to explore and travel.
