At NYU in Florence, you will attend NYU's Liberal Studies Freshmen in Florence Program, taking classes and seminars with a small community of highly talented and diverse students. On completion of the first year of study in Florence, students will continue enrollment as sophomores at our New York City campus.
Liberal Studies offers two courses of study: a two-year Core Program that provides students with a foundation for further study at the other NYU undergraduate schools, and a four-year program leading to the Global Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts degree. Both programs share a core curriculum, a rigorous two-year course of study in the global liberal arts in a small class setting that facilitates students' participation. Both programs encourage students to begin their study at one freshman year campuses in Paris, Florence, or London.
In Florence, approximately 300 upperclassmen will be at the center with you, studying the history of Europe and its extraordinary cultural legacy of art, literature and philosophy at the NYU center in Florence.
All students take intensive Italian at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level in both semesters of study.
