Study in an atmospheric and inspirational location with imaginative field studies

The Arcadia in Sicily program offers something different – immersion into the lifestyle and communities that make up the magnetic island of Sicily, Italy. It’s a place with diverse cultures, history and influences along with a beautiful and unique natural environment.

In the core course: Sicilian Mosaic you will study social, political, historical, artistic and religious themes as they relate to the local area. You’ll also take an Italian language course at your level: beginner, intermediate or advanced. Your three electives can be chosen from a diverse range of courses ranging from art and architecture, to the Mediterranean diet; from Volcanology to creative writing and from sustainability to 3D modeling for archaeological and cultural heritage.

  • Excursions to Catania, Agrigento and Palermo are all part of the academic program.

  • Study in the restored 17th century palazzo where all courses (except Italian language) are taught in English at the Arcadia Sicily Center.

  • Study in an ancient yet modern city which was the birthplace of the  mathematician, Archimedes and is home to the  oldest Greek temple outside of Greece,  the Temple of Apollo.

Studying abroad in a small city offered me the incredible opportunities to not only observe the culture I was learning about but to also become part of it. ”
