The FUA TuttoToscana Study Away program is a flexible model for international study opportunities in Florence and NYC in the fall season. Students may select Florence Session II 3-week courses that feature a course project geared towards the preparation of FUA TuttoToscana events and activities in NYC scheduled during the Intersession Week III. After the 3-week session, students may continue with a fourth study away week in NYC featuring events at the James Beard Foundation. Coursework in both Florence and NYC features 3 different areas of involvement and allows students to take on the challenge of bridging two cosmopolitan cities through hospitality, the visual arts, and food management with the objective of bringing Tuscan culture to NYC.
