"Studying abroad has given me a newfound appreciation for different cultures and countries. I feel more experienced for my time spent abroad. I know that if I can handle anything a completely different country could throw at me, I can definitely handle anything at home, too."

A Note about Spring 2022

Wells in Florence will be offering a hybrid spring 2022 semester. The program will start on Jan. 24, 2022 with one week of online orientation followed by two weeks of online classes before departing for Florence on Feb. 14, 2022. This hybrid semester allows us to offer a visa-free semester for our students, since students will be in Italy just under 90 days. (A visa is only required for trips longer than 90 days.)
