Students at the School in Italy take a combination of Middlebury Program courses and courses at Middlebury’s host universities.


Florence offers students three different tracks based on their level of Italian:

Students are placed in a track based on their course history. Requests for a track other than the initial placement require approval from the program director. Students who change tracks are responsible for communicating with their home institutions about possible repetitions in coursework and earning credit for a language or content course taken more than once.

Students earn a total of four Middlebury credits for the semester. The structure of the program varies by track.

Students have the option of enrolling in courses at the Middlebury Sede, the Università degli Studi di Firenze, either the Accademia d’Arte Firenze (Beginner Track students) or the Accademia di Belle Arti (Intermediate or Advanced Track students; academic year or spring semester only), and/or of participating in an internship for credit.

For Middlebury College Students Only

The course information database contains information on courses taken abroad (both at Middlebury Schools Abroad and externally sponsored programs) and their applicability to Middlebury majors and academic distributions. The database represents only a sampling of courses that have been approved to apply to each major to date. New courses are added regularly as they are approved.
