The program, held in the beautiful city of Reggio Emilia, offers you the opportunity to study the Italian language in Italy under ideal conditions, plus the opportunity to experience Italian culture in the most natural way. The intensive nature of the courses means that you can concentrate exclusively on mastering Italian, and in six weeks earn nine-semester credits toward satisfying divisional language requirements or requirements for a Minor in Italian or a Major in Italian Studies or International Studies.

Reggio is centrally located in the north of Italy, in the historic Emilia Romagna region, well off the routes of mass tourism, but within easy week-end distance of other centers of Italian culture such as Bologna, Florence, Milan, Turin, and Venice, as well as the Adriatic Coast. Best of all, the city is famous was its refined cuisine, high-end craftsmanship, and its people, who are very receptive to students and to your desire to speak their language.
