We invite you to experience the vibrant cultural diversity of Italy’s fashion, art, food and architecture capital and live like a local in Milan. Not as touristy as its southern neighbors, it’s possible to get lost in Milan’s diverse neighborhoods and discover the hidden gems of this cosmopolitan city. Earn three academic credits at UCSC, one of the oldest universities in Milan and the best in Italy, where you’ll study global issues with an Italian perspective with international and Erasmus students from over 100 different countries.
From food to fashion, Milan is at the forefront of not just Italian but European trends, and makes a great jumping off point to explore the rest of Europe with its well-connected air and train travel. Enroll in a course from Entrepreneurship and Innovation or Business and Government and get a leg up on the semester and your major!
