The in-country study unit introduces students to Italian language and culture through an intensive program at a partner university in Italy. It places particular emphasis on understanding cultural differences in authentic contexts. Students will have practical language lessons and receive an introduction to contemporary culture and society. They will participate in cultural activities such as visits to museums, theatres and memorial sites and have the opportunity to interact with local people. The units will develop skills in crosscultural communication through direct contact.
