Art, psychology, and philosophy have been rounded up in one new course through Florence University of the Arts - The American University of Florence: Art, Space, and the City: Mixed-Media Walks. Students walk and engage in a variety of artistic projects, exercises, and experiments to open up their minds to the world and art around them, connecting them with the urban space.
What it means to study at FUA-AUF
Student Jessica Nehme studied with us this summer attending the “Food, Health, and Wellness in Italy” course. This experience moved her so much that she reached out to share what made studying here in Florence special. “Studying overseas with FUA-AUF was like peeling an onion. Every day involved a new experience; and a new layer of the city was revealed. It wasn’t just about attending classes and making new friends; it was navigating unfamiliar streets and diving headfirst into a new culture.
It was exhilarating. I expected to learn in my classes and I expected to eat a dazzling array of Italian food. Both of those expectations were fulfilled, and so much more.
What I didn’t expect was to make so many new friends or to feel so at home in a country so foreign from my own. I began my exchange feeling nervous, apprehensive about being older
than most of the other program participants and with a huge list of uncertainties. I needn’t have worried. The faculty and staff were incredibly welcoming & supportive and meeting
other students was a breeze. Navigating Florence was tricky at first but it was all part of the experience.”
