- Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors.

Famously known as the Birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence's allure stems largely from this explosive era of new ideas and groundbreaking cultural patronage. The beloved home of Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Galileo, Florence continues to attract entrepreneurs, scholars, architects, artists and students inspired by its splendor. You will live in the heart of this historic city, study Italian culture, international law, and global business communication skills, with time off to travel on optional guided excursions to Rome, Venice and Tuscany. Throughout the program, a variety of social and cultural activities are included to help students learn more about the host culture. Students will participate in one to two activities weekly. Examples of past activities include an Italian cooking class, opera night, and a soccer game. In addition, students and faculty will participate in a Florence orientation, a welcome group meal, and a farewell group meal.
