Reggio, as it is called simply by its inhabitants, is known for having one of the highest qualities of life in Italy, and many say that it is home to the country's best food! Students love its active student campus life, and the community’s focus on the outdoors, whether riding a bike on the city’s 41 kilometers of bike paths or enjoying some of the city’s 31 parks. You will enjoy strolling through the recently renovated city center, many cobblestone streets, and spacious piazzas where open markets are held at least three days per week. You can take courses in Italian language, health, education, and communications. Through a variety of field trips you will have firsthand exposure to the history, food, culture and beautiful natural surroundings of the city of Reggio Emilia and the region of Emilia-Romagna. In addition to various high-quality courses taught by local and international professors, the program includes field trips and local visits in the city and neighboring towns, countryside, and nearby sites of unique interest.
The Reggio Emilia program is ideal for students interested in studying Italian language, education, communications, and health issues in a charming midsize city in north-central Italy. With fewer than 200,000 inhabitants, and an award-winning university, Reggio Emilia is a perfect location for students looking to immerse themselves in Italian culture away from crowded tourist destinations. This city of Roman origin, where the Italian tricolor flag was born, is rich in history, culture, and tradition.
