World Civ., Photography, & Language in Siena, Italy

The Università per Stranieri di Siena (est.1921) partners with NWACC Study Abroad program to send participants to participate in four weeks of classroom study in Siena. The program is open to students and members of the community and may be taken for college credit or audit. The Universita will provide instructors for the Italian language course.  All participants will take Italian Language with Univ. of Siena and then have the choice between Photography and Journalism with NWACC instructors. One of the most attractive aspects of the Università—aside from the fact that participants will live and study in the historic city center of Siena, Italy—is its diversity of students. In 2014 students from 95 countries attended the school.
