University of California Education Abroad Program

In addition to the offerings from the Department of Italian, UCLA boasts direct connections with Italy and opportunities for smoothly integrating study there into an American degree program.  Students are encouraged to spend up to one year in Italy on an American education abroad program or in an Italian university. The Education Abroad Program of UCLA places students regularly in one of a number of the finest Italian universities. Students have the opportunities to explore the resources provided by Italy’s two oldest universities, Padua and Bologna; to pursue study in the fine arts and architecture through Florence and Venice; and to study business through Milano’s Bocconi.  After being accepted, students consult with the Undergraduate Advisor on what courses to take abroad, and then obtain UCLA transfer credit upon return.
