Our faculty-led summer programs in Italy are open to all UofSC Aiken students. Subject specific courses, including those related to art history, performance, and studio art, allow students to earn general education and major-related credit while visiting Florence, Orvieto, and Rome. Additional excursions vary each year. Our students have performed in Perugia, Florence, Saint Peter’s Basilica (Rome), the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi (Assisi), and the Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Servi (Orvieto).

Additional opportunities to study abroad in Italy are open to B.A. in Art majors (in Art History, Graphic Design, and Studio and Digital Art). These opportunities include an Archaeological Field School in Orvieto, Italy and internship opportunities at the Italian software company Vetrya. Students interested in these programs must apply in the early fall semester with the UofSC Aiken Office of International Programs. Each summer, one scholarship covering the six-week Archaeological Field School is awarded to B.A. in Art major selected by the Valentini Partners-in-Friendship scholarship committee. Additional scholarships and financial support to study abroad are available through the Office of International Programs.
