Come learn more about this study abroad opportunity! The Sustainable Food and Environmental Systems Program at the International Studies Institute at Palazzo Rucellai in Florence invites students to spend the Fall Semester studying sustainable food and environmental systems in Italy in its three key dimensions: the environment, economy and society. On this extraordinary semester-long UConn faculty-led program you will earn 15 UConn credits, including 2 credits of internship.

Students engage in a wide range of hands-on experiences through study tours and internships exploring crucial elements of Florentine/Italian food systems.

Florence is a world renowned food capital. Its vibrant traditional food markets, street food vendors, restaurants and grocery stores offer uncommon opportunities for engaging with local community and to explore the global-local linkages of food from production to consumption. The SEFSP is tailored for undergraduate students of agricultural sciences, environmental studies, nutritional sciences, economics, business administration, sociology and history, as well as for those generally interested in food and sustainability studies.

Many scholarships are available:
