Padua, Italy

The Padua Language & Liberal Arts Program is run in cooperation with the Università degli Studi di Padua (UNIPD). CIES is located in the historic center of Padua and within walking distance of most university departments. The program includes excursions in and around the Veneto region, as well as to other major Italian art cities.

The program offers intensive language study and coursework in an historic university town 20 miles west of Venice.
