Ferrara is a Renaissance city in northeastern Italy midway between Venice and Florence and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A smaller city relatively unknown to tourists, it provides an ideal setting for Italian language and cultural immersion.

Students take Italian 230 taught by a UM Italian instructor and receive 8 credits in Italian 230 to complete their third- and fourth-semester LSA language requirements.

Staying with a host family allows students to immerse themselves in Italian daily life. The Italian 230 in Ferrara program is packed with activities and excursions that allow students to practice their language skills and experience Italian culture in Ferrara and beyond. Examples include guided city tours, group dinners, pasta making, local festivals and parades, and day trips to Tuscany and Venice.

This course is taught & led by U-M Italian Lecturer Luisa Garrido Baez.
