The Breyer Center for Overseas Studies in Florence has been offering transformative experiences for Stanford undergraduates since 1960. The Program focuses on total academic and cultural immersion and strives to give students a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary core that pivots on the Renaissance, the European Union, the Mediterranean, and Italian language, history, and its vibrant, contemporary culture. With a maximum enrollment of 45 students per quarter students benefit from an intimate learning environment in a bustling international city. Florence participants are housed as a cohort in a student residence (TSH) conveniently located in the historical city center.
