LDM Florence Campus


Lorenzo de' Medici (LdM) offers month-long Summer Sessions in June and July. Summer Programs are the perfect opportunity to earn credit and experience Italian culture in a concentrated period of time. A broad selection of courses, hands-on workshops, renowned field schools, featured summer excursions, and culinary arts exploration are all part of LdM's diverse summer offering. Three campuses are available - Florence, Rome, and Tuscania.


Academic Subjects

LdM courses usually involve 45-50 contact hours per term. The standard course load is 3-6 credits per session. Courses include those in Business, Communications, Economics, International Relations, Italian Culture & Language, Culinary Arts, Media, and Sociology.


Students generally live in shared apartments with other students or they can choose to live in homestays with a local Italian host, which includes half board/meals. Students are not obliged to choose housing through LdM, however, and may find their own accommodations independently.
