The Summer Abroad program in Siena, established in 1972, was our first Summer Abroad program and was the model for the other summer programs. Since its inception, over 5,300 students from across Canada have completed a University of Toronto summer course in Siena. The praise for the program has been consistently and overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Your host is the University of Siena, Italy’s second oldest university, dating back to 1240. It is a state university with over 18,000 students.
There will be six courses offered in 2020. Each course is worth one full-year credit and is contingent on adequate enrolment. Mandatory field trips are an integral part of each course and may occur outside of class time on afternoons or Fridays.
