API in Tuscania, Italy: Semester/Year
API students have the opportunity to study at Lorenzo de’ Medici – The Italian International Institute in Tuscania (LdM). Founded in 1973 in Florence, LdM is committed to helping students realize their potential, providing high quality education that enables students to interact successfully with other cultures. Lorenzo de’ Medici opened in Tuscania in 2004, an ideal city and place to inspire the creative, intellectual and personal development of each student. The school is situated in the old town center within the stone medieval walls. This building has recently been remodeled to feature modern, light-filled studios and classrooms. API students are engaged in the study of the humanities, social sciences, studio arts, media studies and Italian language with other committed students who seek to learn and to explore Italy in a comprehensive way. API invites students to discover the essence of Italy while studying and living in beautiful and historic Tuscania.
Students complete four to five courses and receive 12-16 credit hours per semester, or approximately 3 credits per course. Students may choose from courses in the arts, humanities, argriculture, culinary field, or Italian language. There are also semester-long certificate programs in archeology that allow students to participate on a live Etruscan dig site!
