About the Program

LdM’s Academic Semester and Academic Year Programs give students the flexibility to choose from over 400 courses and combine classes from four academic areas:

School of Italian Language & Culture
School of Arts & Sciences
School of Creative Arts
School of Design 

Academic Semester and Academic Year Programs are available to internationally qualified students. These study abroad experiences allow undergraduate and independent students to gain a deeper understanding of Italian culture and language.

Academic Year students may also decide to experience two different Italian regions and cultures, studying at one LdM campus for the fall semester and in another for the spring semester.
 

LDM Florence
Programs vary in the weight given to Italian language, and allow students to choose how much time they wish to spend developing their language skills. Students are required to take at least one Italian language course during their first semester at LdM. Beyond the mandatory Italian language component, students choose between a vast selection of courses taught in English, satisfying personal preferences and the requirements of their degree programs.

All courses, except Italian language courses, are taught in English. Attendance is mandatory.

LdM Florence Academic Highlights

LdM Florence is situated in the heart of Tuscany, a region that alone has more classified historical monuments than anywhere else in the world. This makes LdM Florence the ideal choice for those interested in studying the humanities, creative arts, design and, of course, Italian language and culture.

Students can choose from over 400 courses, all of which are taught in English, except for Italian language classes. Study abroad programs range from academic semesters to summer courses and workshops, undergraduate certificate programs and bachelor’s degree programs.

LdM also offers a Master of Arts in Museum Studies for graduate students. Through the years, students at LdM Florence have also had the opportunity to undertake internships in Italy’s best museums, as well as in many artisan and small companies that characterize the centuries-old commercial activity of the charming Florentine territory.

About Florence

As the birthplace of modern humanism, naturalistic arts and scientific inquiry, Florence is celebrated as the cradle of the Italian Renaissance, the place where Dante, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli and Galileo Galilei changed forever the way we see the world. For centuries, travelers and admirers of the arts and culture have fallen in love with both the city and its enchanting countryside. Recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site for its unique monuments and architecture, Florence has become the epitome of a global city, reflecting the world's diverse cultures, ethnicities, ideas, and forms of creativity, while remaining faithful to its strong artistic tradition.
