Tuscany is renowned throughout the world for its art, history and beautiful landscape. Florence lies like a jewel in the heart of Tuscany, compact and teeming with piazzas, palaces, churches, museums and markets. Here, in the center of Italy, you will walk in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Petrarch and Dante.


As you walk the narrow and hand-hewn streets, absorb the magnificence of the medieval and renaissance architecture and the beauty of the sculptures that adorn walls and stand in the loggias of their grand piazzas.


Learn the way of Italian living from the lively and intellectual Florentines as you rub elbows with them in small "caffe" bars while enjoying the local cappuccino and panini. Your Italian 'Life and Culture' instructor will help set the stage and serve as your 'cultural informant.'

Atsugi is also known as "techno town" as it is a center for major companies such as Sony, Nissan, Canon and Richoh. Close to the exciting cities of Tokyo and Yokohama the campus provides an ideal location for student life and exploration.


Japan offers a rich environment of arts, culture and history where centuries-old traditions exist in contrast with ultra-modern life-styles. Experience Sumo wrestling, Kabuki Theater, ancient castles and temples dating back to the days of the Samurai warriors. How about some trendy Tokyo street fashions (wild and crazy) in the Harajuku district, the latest in high technology, electronics and gadgetry, anime, and a city that never sleeps.   Tokyo has many faces and each neighborhood is unique and has its own distinct character. From the elegant Ginza shopping district, historical Asakusa, to the trend-setting Harajuku and Shinjuku wards, the fascination is endless.


An experienced Community College faculty member will lead the group and teach the curriculum along with local faculty members.   Local program managers will serve as hosts and advisors and will arrange for Japanese students to serve as student ambassadors.   These students will assist with language, customs and cultural adjustments and also serve as guides when traveling to Tokyo and exploring the city. It is a great opportunity to practice their English, so everybody wins!
