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 40 students per quarter students benefit from an intimate learning environment in a bustling international city.
For Academic Year 2021-2022 and Academic Year 2022-23 Florence participants will be housed in a student residence (TSH). We hope to return to the homestay housing model in the future.
share their first-hand experiences about the program, what led them to choose the program, and some of the challenges they faced while studying abroad. Dive deeper into 'a day in the life' while abroad, as a particular student experience may help you decide if this program is right for you.
