Program Description:

Academic Focus: Italian, film studies, history, art history, literature, political science, sociology, and music. This program is open to all majors, but may be particularly suited to students with academic interests in the majors listed here.

Approximate Dates: Fall: early September to mid December; Spring: early January to late May

Note: Fall semester students enrolled in Italian-taught courses at the Università Bocconi will no longer be able to take early exams in December. Instead, students will be required to take the official university exams held in mid- to late January. Exact exam dates will not be available until students have completed their registration in Milan. Note that IES Abroad will cover student housing if a student stays in January to take official exams. Students enrolled in English-taught courses at Bocconi will not be affected by this policy.

Eligibility Requirements: A minimum 3.0 GPA, good academic standing.

Courses: Courses are offered primarily in English, although all students study Italian language. Courses are available in the academic areas listed above. Students will receive six Emory credits for the intensive beginning or intermediate language course or four credits for advanced Italian language and three credits for all other courses taken for a total of 15-16 credits. IES Course listings are available on the IES website.

Living Arrangements: IES generally places students in apartments in Milan with local Italian students or young professionals. Usually there are 2-3 IES students per apartment, and all apartments are furnished. Students are not provided with meals, as apartments are equipped with cooking facilities and utilities.

IES also offers a limited number of placements at the Collegio di Milano, a student residence for Italian and international honors students (for intermediate-advanced language students only). The Collegio offers a meal plan, a computer room, a library, a cafeteria, and an auditorium for special cultural programs. Placement in the Collegio is not guaranteed and applications are considered on a first come, first served basis. Students are chosen by the Collegio based on academic criteria. Due to the above amenities, the Collegio option has an additional fee (see the cost section for more information).

*Note: the Collegio housing option is a great option for students that would like to have a language immersion experience as almost all students at the Collegio are Italian.

Costs: A full description of the program costs and billing procedures is available in the budget sheets. Please click here for Budget Sheets Fall Spring

Visa: Students studying in Italy will require a student visa which will be affixed to a page in the passport. An IES Advisor will provide instructions for this process at a later date. It is imperative that students immediately apply for a passport if they do not already have one or renew their passport if it will expire within six months of the end date of the program.
