The Los Rios Study Abroad Program is now accepting applications to study in Florence, Italy for the upcoming Spring 2023 semester. 

About the Trip

Florence is an inspiring, vibrant city in which to live, study, and explore. Immerse yourself in college courses in art, sociology, economics, business, and kinesiology while exploring cobbled streets, ancient gardens, and culturally-rich galleries and museums, and discovering modern street art, regional celebrations, energetic professional football, and wildly fascinating history replete with inventors and artists. This venerable living history museum and birthplace of the Renaissance will not disappoint!

The program will run from February 4 through May 5, 2023 and will be led by FLC sociology professor Dr. Diane Carlson. Don't let this life-changing opportunity pass you by! For best selection of classes, apply by the priority deadline of Friday, September 23, 2022. The final deadline to apply is Friday, November 4, 2022.

Why Should You Apply?

Studying abroad helps students become active, engaged members of the global society by offering unique cultural experiences, personal growth, and new knowledge and skills. (And, hopefully, some fun too!)

Minimum participation requirements:

  • 18 years of age
  • 12 units of college completed
  • 2.25 GPA (college)
  • Be in good academic standing

All students and faculty come from Northern California community colleges, and classes are taught in English. Support staff are provided in each country for illnesses, counseling, and any questions or issues that arise. Financial aid, scholarships, and loans may be available to help with program expenses. Students with U.S. passports will not need a travel Visa to participate in the program as long as they do not extend their trip beyond the program's 90-day length.

Our programs are administered in partnership with the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS).
