The Florence: Global Cities program: Florence is a vibrant, awe-inspiring, and culturally rich Global City. Its history as the cradle of the Renaissance remains readily accessible through its art and architecture, and with an ever-growing immigrant population, Florence is very much a multi-cultural city. You can explore the city's diversity by taking a Migrantour or visiting Vivi-Market to find authentic  foods and ingredients from Asia, Latin America and other regions. This immersive study abroad program gives you insight into the significant ways in which Florence has been imagined, invented, and transformed by globalization. Earn 12-18 credits
