Study European politics while living in one of Italy's most beautiful cities

Nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean in the magnificent Piedmont region of northern Italy, the city of Turin provides an inspiring background for this interdisciplinary program about modern European politics and issues.

You'll immerse yourself in the culture of this remarkable city while taking one or two (consecutive) three-credit courses:

  • European Politics (GOVT 3323), June 2–21
  • Population Controversies in Europe (PAM 3620), June 22–July 12

The courses are taught in English by Cornell faculty, with guest lectures by Italian English-speaking faculty, and hosted by the Einaudi Foundation in Palazzo d'Azeglio in Turin's historic center. You'll share a room in a residential hall at the University of Turin.

In addition to the courses, the program includes extracurricular activities and excursions in Turin and the Piedmont region.

Also, participants in the program will be able to apply for a limited number of internships with community-building nonprofit organizations in Turin, lasting anywhere from two and six weeks.
