How Does Italy Abroad Work?

Academic Modules

While classes begin during the regular Bryan semester, they fall into a modular schedule during the Italy portion of the semester. You will take nineteen credit hours in intensive modules; some modules offer two concurrent classes to choose from. Lectures run 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday with an extended lunch break. Homework for the next day is completed each evening. This system enables students to enjoy a deep, intensive look at each subject with their professor and classmates. If you have any special course needs, in addition to courses offered in Italy, please see your academic advisor. Apply here
