Study Abroad

Italy--the #1 non-English speaking country for American students!*

The Italian Program believes strongly in the Study Abroad program for our majors, minors and for any other students taking Italian. The experience of studying and living in Italy enhances students' understanding of the native culture while improving their language skills.

Montclair State University offers a number of programs: 

  • ‌MIF: Montclair in Florence
    Faculty-Led 6-week summer program for all students
    Live, study and explore the cradle of the Italian Renaissance. It is said that 'the history of Florence is the history of the West', as it has been an important cultural center for thousands of years. The program ensures that the city is your classroom, with all that it has to offer. Take courses in Italian language (elementary to advanced) and Italian culture and civilization in English (art, history, literature) or media (broadcasting), for a total of 6 credits.
